The trial of Steven Gabriel Moos began Tuesday and the jury found him guilty of three counts of 1st-degree rape, six counts of 1st-degree sodomy and one count of 1st-degree unlawful sexual penetration.

Court records show Moos abused his victim between 2004 and 2015, while she was between the ages of 5 and 17. The alleged abuse began in China and continued in the United Arab Emirates.

Moos abruptly moved from Oregon to China to avoid prosecution in Oregon in 2004 after he became the subject of a criminal investigation. His flight from justice continued in 2008 when he left China and settled in the UAE to avoid Chinese authorities.

He allegedly resumed abusing the child in 2010 in the UAE.
