     ELMIRA (WENY) -- A man could serve life in prison, after a Chemung County jury found him guilty of sexually abusing a child in Elmira.
     District Attorney Weeden Wetmore says the jury convicted 37-year-old Timothy Knapp of four counts of predatory sexual assault against a child. Wetmore says Knapp lived in Elmira during the summer of 2011, when he sexually abused his wife's 11 year old daughter from a previous relationship.
     Knapp faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison when he's sentenced next month.
