Superior Court Judge Vernon P. Perez

A Superior Court jury found University of Guam professor, Dr. Michael Ehlert, guilty on two of three criminal sexual conduct charges.

The charges stemmed from incidents at Dr. Ehlert's Ipan Talofofo home in 2014.

Specifically, Ehlert was found guilty of attempted third degree criminal sexual conduct and guilty of third degree sexual conduct.

The victims were named only by initials, but were present in court.

Prosecutor Matthew Heibel said Ehlert faces up to 16 years behind bars. "So each count is one to eight years," he said. Ehlert's sentencing is set for October 4 and he'll remain under house arrest until then.
