SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A Shreveport man was convicted of the rapes of two ArkLaTex children this week and faces the possibility of life in prison.

Robert Ladell, 29 was convicted of the aggravated rape of one child between February 24, 2009 and February 23, 2013 and a charge of simple rape of a second girl between December 2013 and March 2015, according to the Caddo District Attorney's Office.

The victims were nine and 10-years-old.

An investigation began after a child told her parents. While the first case was pending, that's when police got a second complaint.

Ladell admitted to police he had inappropriate conduct with one of the victims.

He will return to court on Nov. 14 for sentencing. Ladell faces life in prison without possibility of probation, parole or suspension of sentence for the aggravated rape of a minor conviction, and up to 25 years in prison, also without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence, for the simple rape of a minor conviction.

The trial began on Monday, Nov. 5 and ended on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
