WAPAKONETA - Jurors deliberated 12 1/2 hours Thursday and Friday before finding a local optometrist guilty of sexually assaulting an elderly woman in his St. Marys home in 2009.

Prior to deliberations, the judge told jurors they could consider a lesser offense if they thought there was insufficient evidence for a rape conviction. [More]
