WATERLOO – A Waterloo man has been convicted of breaking into a home and attacking a female acquaintance inside.
Jurors deliberated for about an hour before finding Mario Desean Goodson, 37, guilty of first-degree burglary, sexual abuse, operating a vehicle without owner’s consent and other charges following a trial that began last week.
Sentencing will be at a later date.
Authorities allege Goodson entered a home on Dec. 23 and struck a woman inside. When she attempted to spray him with a Mace gun, he took away the device and beat her with it and sexually assaulted her, court records state. Goodson then drove off in the woman’s vehicle, records state.
Goodson has a prior sex abuse conviction from 1999.
