Man convicted again in sexual assault of 12-year-old at church
BATON ROUGE - A man arrested in a 2012 sex crime involving a pre-teen at a local church was convicted a second time after he was granted a second trial in East Baton Rouge.
Kevin Guzman, 28, was found guilty in 2019, but a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision banning convictions by non-unanimous juries led to that conviction being tossed.
Guzman was accused of forcing a 12-year-old girl to perform oral sex on him on two different occasions when he was 19 years old. One of those incidents reportedly happened in the soundproof production room of a church.
The Advocate reports Guzman was convicted again Tuesday on a charge of sexual battery and will face sentencing Jan. 11.
