Felipe Vazquez, a former MLB pitcher, was found guilty of sexual harassment charges in 2017 after having sex with a 13-year-old teen, according to sources.

According to Wink News, a jury in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania found the two-time Pittsburgh Pirates all-star guilty of statutory sexual harassment, sexual exploitation of minors, and indecent assault of a minor under the age of 16.

According to the outlet, a jury found him not guilty of ten counts of improper contact or communication with the teen.

During deliberations, the jury requested to see pictures and video of the teen, according to Wink.

The victim, now 17 and a Florida resident, was present in the courtroom when the verdict was read, according to WPXI 11. According to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, she testified that she and Vasquez had sex in his car outside her home hours before a Pirates game.

Vazquez, who was arrested in September 2019, said that he believed the girl was 17 years old at the time they had sex.
