Twin Falls man convicted in UI student rape case
A Latah County jury has found a Twin Falls man guilty of raping a University of Idaho student.
A jury returned the guilty verdict against Jesse Veirstra, 20, Friday morning.
Vierstra, who is not a University of Idaho student, sexually assaulted the 18-year-old victim outside a fraternity house last October.
The jury deliberated for about four hours after getting the case Thursday following three days of testimony in the trial, which began last Monday.
A sentencing date has not been set, but Vierstra could face up to life in prison.
