MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — A West Texas petroleum engineer has been convicted over what police say involved a "rape kit" or other items needed for a kidnapping.
The penalty phase was scheduled Friday for 49-year-old Juan Jose Guerra of Big Spring.
Jurors in Midland on Thursday convicted Guerra, who did not testify, of possession of a criminal instrument with the intent to commit aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault. He faces a possible two to 20 years in prison.
Midland police on April 28, 2010, arrested Guerra outside a dance school. Investigators say Guerra had two handguns, a stun gun, tape, gloves, plastic ties, personal lubricant and condoms in his vehicle.
