Jury convicts Jasper man on charges of solicitation and attempted sexual assault of a child

A jury in Jasper County found a Jasper man guilty of solicitation and attempted sexual assault of a child after a trial that lasted less than a day.

The sentencing phase of 44-year-old Bobby Ray Houston's trial will start Tuesday.

Jurors Monday afternoon returned the guilty verdict, convicting Houston of trying to lure a 16-year-old girl to have sex with him.

Two officers and the victim's guardian testified, as did the teenage victim. Houston chose not to take the stand in his own defense.
