Mandan Lyft driver convicted of sexually assaulting rider

MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A Mandan Lyft driver has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a rider.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that jurors convicted 39-year-old Corey Wickham on Thursday after a two-day trial and nearly eight hours of deliberations.

A woman told police that Wickham picked her up from a bar last August and sexually assaulted her. He testified that the woman consented to sex, though he acknowledged she was drunk.

Sentencing was not immediately scheduled.
