A former middle school teacher's assistant was convicted on four counts of sex abuse Monday.
A judge found Jose Moreno of Salem guilty of sexually abusing three young boys, including two students with disabilities Monday.
Court documents reveal that Moreno admitted to the abuse back in October and that he knew what he was doing was wrong, but he told police he did it anyway because he wanted to see what it was like.
The Salem - Keizer Public School District says Moreno had worked as an instructional assistant at Whiteaker Middle School for the last four years, and that he primarily worked with students who have developmental disabilities.
Court documents say the crimes took place between January 2010 and October 2012.
The abuse reportedly happened in one of the restrooms at Whiteaker Middle School and also at Moreno's home in Salem.
Investigators say they learned about the abuse from the Department of Human Services workers.
Moreno's sentencing is scheduled for July 25.
