A middle-aged father of six who groped a 14-year-old boy on Whalley bus station could be facing jail.
Syed Uddin, 48, was convicted of sexual assault after a three-day trial at Burnley Crown Court.
Uddin, of Hope Street, Accrington, had denied the allegation and claimed the attack never happened. He was bailed until December 13, for a pre-sentence report and will learn his fate at Preston Crown Court.
The defendant, who was ordered to sign the sex offenders' register, has one previous conviction for fraud by false representation. He was told not to contact the victim.
Judge Simon Newell told him given the offence was sexual, he wanted the probation service to look into his background and character. The judge continued: "The fact I am granting you bail isn't to be taken as an indication of the final sentence. All options will be open."
The jury had been told how the assault took place last September when the victim- who cannot be named for legal reasons - was on the bus station.
The defendant approached him and asked him if he knew where the toilets were. Uddin walked off, but then returned and struck whilst the teenager was looking at the timetable.
