HOUSTON -

The man who is accused of sexually assaulting three children, including a 10-year-old girl at her mother's birthday party appeared in court today.

Frank Distefano is facing charges: sexual performance with a child and aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14.

A total of three children have come forward.

Distefano was first arrested last year for tricking a 10-year-old into wearing items meant for sexual use at a birthday party.

That same girl testified today. The state will continue to present evidence on Wednesday.
