Former Houston officer found guilty of sexual assault

Posted: Updated:

A jury has convicted a former officer with the Houston Police Department to two counts of aggravated sexual assault.

After the jury deliberated on Thursday and reached a verdict in the case against Abraham Joseph, the judge instructed the jurors to take a lunch break before delivering the verdict around 1:30 p.m.

The jury has been deliberating since 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Joseph, who has since been fired from HPD, handcuffed and arrested a waitress and another man in January 2011, and drove them away from the cantina where she worked, said investigators. Surveillance photos show Joseph letting the man out at a gas station. The woman said she was then driven to a nearby park at 3 a.m. and repeatedly raped by Joseph.
