Man convicted of molesting teens in Immokalee

NAPLES, Fla. A 49-year-old man was found guilty Thursday for inappropriately touching and groping three victims, the state attorney’s office said.

Ducarmel Bellevue was charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation after a two-day trial, the state attorney’s office said.

The molestation spanned over the course of about two years in Immokalee, the state attorney’s office said. Two of the victims were 13 and the other victim was 15 at the time of the crimes.

The abuse was discovered after one of the children told an adult, the state attorney’s office said.

Bellevue faces up to 45 years in prison and is scheduled for sentencing on Oct. 26.
