DENVER (CBS4) – A man accused in connection with the sexual assault of a young woman in 2008 has been found guilty.
Lynn Kimbrough with the Denver District Attorney’s Office said Domonique Huntington, 26, was convicted of sexual assault.
The arrest and conviction is the result of work by Denver’s Cold Case Project.
A co-defendant, Connie Liphford, 28, was convicted of sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact last year
“The assault occurred in February 2008 when the two men offered a ride to the victim, a 26-year-old woman, but instead of taking her home they drove to an isolated area where they both sexually assaulted her,” Kimbrough said in a statement.
DNA evidence collected at the time of the assault led to the identification of Huntington and Liphford as suspects.
Huntington will be sentenced in June.
