GILLETTE, Wyo. — A 36-year-old Gillette man has been convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage girl.

A jury convicted John Wayne Butler of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. The jury reached its verdict on Tuesday.

Court documents contend the assault occurred in 2010 in Butler's car.

A third-degree sexual assault count, stemming from a 2012 incident involving the same girl, was dropped when Butler was bound over to district court in March.

Campbell County Deputy Attorney Ron Wirthwein said sentencing is expected within 60 days.
