CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming man has been convicted of sexually assaulting a woman with Down syndrome after a judge rejected motions for acquittal based on the argument he was too intoxicated to form the intent to commit the crime.

Assistant Natrona County District Attorney Dan Itzen tells KTWO-AM that Raymond Martin Brown was convicted Friday of third-degree sexual assault and intentional abuse of a vulnerable adult. He was jailed pending sentencing.

Prosecutors say Brown and the woman met in Casper in July 2017 and the assault happened in his vehicle outside a bar.

Defense attorney Donald Tolin argued Brown was too intoxicated to have any intent to commit the crimes and was not aware she had Down syndrome.

Assistant District Attorney Kevin Taheri told jurors Brown showed intent by kissing the woman and leading her toward his truck.
