A Kern County jury convicted Brian Cox of a misdemeanor charge of annoying a child Thursday.

Cox, 29, was accused of exposing himself to two 12-year-old girls walking on a sidewalk on Sept. 30, 2011. Before exposing himself to the girls, Cox was seen masturbating in his vehicle by a woman driving on Olive Drive earlier that day.

Cox faces up to a year in jail at his Feb. 22 sentencing.
