(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A former Stewartville teacher convicted of sex abuse, has been found guilty of the same thing once again.

Francis Skinness was found guilty Friday afternoon of all three charges by a jury. He's accused of touching 3rd grade girls at Bonner Elementary.  

In 2011, Skinness was convicted of similar acts against students, and was sentenced to 30 days in jail.  He was also required to register as a sex offender for 7 years.

During that time, a third victim came forward, and the additional charges were filed. It's charges stemming from the third girl that Skinness was found guilty on.  A sentencing date is pending.
