HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - A teen from the Town of Columbia has been found guilty of the charge of criminal sexual act, following a four-day jury trial in Herkimer County Court.

According to Acting District Attorney Jeff Carpenter, during the month of May or June 2010 in the Town of Columbia, the teen, whose name was withheld by authorities because he is a potential youthful offender, engaged in oral sexual conduct with a person less than 11 years old.

Carpenter said that the jury deliberated for roughly two and a half hours after listening to eight witnesses testify.

The teen is awaiting sentencing on November 13, 2012.
