A grandfather in Maywood has been convicted of sex crimes involving his grandchildren, nieces and others, authorities said this week. 

Jose Olivarez Rodriguez, 59, was convicted Friday of 14 felony counts of lewd acts with a child involving six different female children between 5 and 14 years old, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The crimes occurred over a two-year period in Maywood. Rodriguez's relationship to the victims included grandfather, uncle and the babysitter's husband, the Sheriff's Department said. It was not immediately clear what the relationship of each individual victim was.

The trial was held in Norwalk Superior Court and sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 11.
