A jury found an 18-year-old former Brigham Young University student guilty of forcible sexual abuse.

Antonio Rubalcaba Lacy was found guilty Monday on all second-degree felony counts in 4th District Court.

According to court documents, police on the Mormon church-owned campus investigated a complaint that Lacy had repeatedly touched the genitals of his sleeping roommate in the Wymount Student Housing room they shared at BYU between Oct. 1 and Oct. 15. Further investigation turned up another alleged incident involving a prior roommate in January.

Lacy's defense attorney was expected to submit a motion for a mistrial, according to court documents. The court allowed Lacy to remain out of custody. Sentencing was scheduled for Aug. 23.
