Contractor guilty of assaulting client's child

Jurors in Monmouth County have convicted a contractor of sexually assaulting a customer's young daughter over a four-year period.

Today's verdict comes less than a day after the panel began weighing the evidence against Clement Bilski Jr.

The 45-year-old faced 143 counts, including aggravated sexual assault.

Jurors watched more than 5 hours of graphic videotapes of Bilski with the child, who was 2 when the abuse started. Jurors were driven to tears at times.

The defense never called a witness.
