Guam – After several days of being deadlocked, the jury in the Step-dad rape trial of Alvin San Nicolas has finally returned a verdict of guilty on two of the fifteen counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct for the rape of his stepdaughter. Specifically, they convicted him on counts one and fifteen.
Judiciary Spokesman Josh Tenorio tells PNC that although the jury came back with a not guilty verdict on counts 2 through 9, they did find him guilty on the lesser included charges of third degree criminal sexual conduct. As for counts 10 to 14, Tenorio says, San Nicolas was found not guilty.
San Nicolas was on trial for the second time for the rape of his step-daughter back in 2009 and 2010, while her mother was deployed to Iraq. He had already been found guilty on all counts back in February 2012, but that conviction was overturned on appeal due to flaws in the indictment.
Each of the 15 counts correspond to the 15 months of sexual abuse the victim suffered from June 2009 to August 2010 when she was 14 and 15 years old.
San Nicolas is scheduled to be sentenced on February 11 at 11 am.
