GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A jury has convicted a Montana man of kidnapping a 4-year-old girl from a park and sexually assaulting her.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/EInuyi ) 21-year-old John Lieba, of Wolf Point, was convicted Tuesday of kidnapping, aggravated sexual abuse and assault resulting in serious bodily injury. He is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 3.

Authorities say Lieba abducted the girl while she was playing in a park at night in the town of Wolf Point on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. A grand jury indictment filed in June said he engaged in a sex act with the girl and assaulted her.

The girl was found by a Roosevelt County sheriff’s deputy Feb. 28, 2016, two days after she disappeared and just a few miles from where she was abducted.
