JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- William Permenter was convicted of several child sex crimes last week, including Lewd and Lascivious Molestation.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred between December 2011 and February 2012.

During the span, Permenter intoxicated three victims -- ages 9, 12 and 16 -- with "wine coolers", according to the State Attorney's Office. 

He also forced the victims to watch pornographic videos.

According to the State Attorney's Office, Permenter also inappropriately touched one of the victims and forced a child to touch him.

He was convicted on two counts of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation, two counts of Sale or Showing of Obscene Material to Minors and three counts of Sale/Providing Alcoholic Beverages to a Person Under Age 21. 

In 1986, Permenter pleaded guilty to a charge of Lewd Assault.
