Minot, ND - A Minot man has been found guilty in adult court of sexually molesting an underage girl when he was 14 and 16 years old.
24-year-old Casey Ryan was convicted of two counts of Gross Sexual Imposition, involving the same girl when she was age 9 and 11, with the most recent incident in 2011.
Court records, now unsealed, indicate Ryan had sexual contact with the girl.
The jury's guilty verdicts mean Ryan faces up to 40 years in prison, 20 years for each of the two class-A felony counts.
A pre-sentence investigation has been ordered...no sentencing date has been set.
NOTE: This story clarifies an earlier report that was confusing regarding Ryan's age, and that he was found guilty by a jury of illegal sexual contact with the young girl.
