A Brownsville man is now back behind bars after a jury convicted him of aggravated sexual assault.
A 12 year-old girl came forward claiming Jose Guadalupe Lopez sexually assaulted her in August 2005. After a three day trial jurors took an hour and half to come to their verdict. Deputies cuffed him and took Lopez to the Carrizales-Rucker Detention Center. His sentencing is scheduled for June 15th and a conviction carries a 5 to 99 years in prison.
