Acting U.S. Attorney Lynn Jordheim says 30-year-old Monty Mariner was convicted Thursday in Minot on charges of sexual abuse, assault resulting in serious bodily injury and assault with a dangerous weapon. He is to be sentenced Sept. 27.
Authorities say Mariner physically and sexually assaulted a woman inside a vehicle after leaving a house party in New Town last November. Jordheim says the woman suffered life-threatening injuries.
