A convicted killer who was placed in a D.C. school as a mentor has been convicted of sexually abusing a student.
Barry Harrison of Oxon Hill, Md., worked for the nonprofit anti-violence group, Peaceoholics. He was assigned to mentor students at Springarn High School.
Prosecutors say the 50-year-old fondled a 15-year-old girl and forced her to perform a sexual act in a basement stairwell.
Harrison was convicted Friday of three counts of second-degree child sexual abuse and one count of enticing a minor. Because of his previous convictions, he faces up to 30 years in prison on each of the counts. He was convicted of second-degree murder in the 1980s.
Peaceoholics officials say they didn't know about the conviction.
