BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) — A jury has convicted a man of sexually assaulting a 55-year-old woman at a group home for mentally ill patients in Aurora.

The Adams County District Attorney’s Office says 50-year-old William Jesse Rattler was convicted Friday of sexual assault on an at-risk victim. Prosecutors say he and his wife were operating an unlicensed home for mentally ill patients.

Rattler was charged with two counts of sexual assault on an at-risk victim involving two women who were living at the home. The jury convicted him of one count but acquitted him of the other.

Rattler is scheduled to be sentenced July 30.
