Suspect found guilty of sex crime

By Brad Kessie – bio | email

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) – Alfonso Rivera Guadiana will spend the next 25 years in jail.  He was found guilty Wednesday of sexual battery.

During the two day trial, jurors were told Guadiana sexually assaulted a woman who ran a mission house for a Baptist church in Gulfport.  According to Harrison County prosecutors, the crime was committed on February 10.  That was the day the victim met Guadiana, and drove him to Walmart so he could pick up some supplies.  The evidence presented by prosecutors convinced the jury that when the suspect and victim returned to the mission house, Guadiana forced his way inside and raped her.

Prosecutors told the jury Guadiana was living in the Gulfport area at the time of the sexual battery.  He's been in custody since his arrest.

Prosecutors say immigration officials have a hold on Guadiana.  He's supposed to be deported once he completes his 25 year prison sentence.
