LIMA — Jurors in the rape trial of a Lima man deliberated for only an hour Wednesday before finding him guilty of rape, but not guilty of a second count of rape that included the alleged use of force.
Testimony in the two-day trial of Daniel Brisco, 31, ended before noon Wednesday and, following a lunch break, the nine-woman, three-man jury began its deliberations shortly before 2 p.m. The verdict was delivered at 3:15 p.m.
Allen County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey Reed said Brisco will be sentenced after another case in which he is named as a defendant is resolved. Brisco is scheduled to stand trial June 20 on a charge of attempted vehicular assault.
