After nearly an hour and a half of deliberations, Adam Bowers was found guilty on all charges from a 2001 sexual assault case involving an 83-year-old woman.........Following Bowers testimony, the prosecution and defense presented their closing arguments. The prosecution focused mainly on the DNA evidence that linked Bowers to this case, instead of Joseph Buffey, who plead guilty back in 2001. A DNA expert said that only 1 out of 40 billion people would have the same DNA as what was found at the crime scene and identified as Bowers. But the defense argued that that they jury couldn't rely on just the DNA and that no physical evidence linked Bowers to being at the victim's home on Nov. 30 of 2001.........Bower's could face up to 55 years behind bars. His sentencing is scheduled for August 19th at 11:45 a.m.
