VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A Clark County jury has found former Beaverton, Oregon, police officer guilty of raping a 5-year-old girl with a pencil last year.

The Columbian reports (https://is.gd/NJuobJ ) 34-year-old Christopher Warren showed no emotion Friday during the reading of the verdict on a charge of first-degree rape.

Afterward, Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson sent him to the Clark County Jail. A corrections officer escorted Warren out of the courthouse.

The jurors reached the unanimous verdict after about 6 1/2 hours of deliberation. Testimony started early Tuesday and concluded Thursday.

Jurors declined to comment on their decision as they filed out of the courtroom.

A hearing to sentence Warren has not yet been scheduled.
