SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ A Salina man convicted of raping his girlfriend's 11-year-old daughter is set for sentencing March 7th.
Jesus Berriozabal was found guilty Tuesday of rape, attempted rape and two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy. His attorney contends that the girl's mother fabricated the story because she was angry with Berriozabal.
He was convicted of raping the girl on July 4th. Prosecutors said a rape attempt three days later was thwarted when the girl's older sister walked into the house unexpectedly.
