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.
