SHERMAN, Tex. -- One of three men accused of sexually assaulting a Sherman woman found guilty of the crime Friday.

A Grayson county jury found 19-year-old Jason Edward Whitten guilty of aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping, both first degree felonies.

Police say in May, Whitten and two other men broke into the woman's home and sexually assaulted her several times.

Whitten's sentencing began late Friday afternoon. The punishment phase is expected to wrap up by the middle of next week.

If found guilty he could face up to 99 years in prison.
