THERMOPOLIS, Wyo. A Hot Springs County jury convicted the prominent Casper businessman of third-degree sexual assault after a June 2017 incident at his Alcova lake house.
Jurors deliberated for around 11 hours over two days.
A Natrona County jury could not come to a unanimous verdict on the same charge earlier this year, but it did acquit Cercy of two more serious counts.
The judge then granted a defense motion to move the trial.
Despite the outcome, the prosecutor feels we need to make it easier for sexual assault victims to come forward.
