Dwayne L. Houston has been found guilty of first-degree burglary, attempted forcible rape and second-degree sexual misconduct.
On July 23, 2011, the victim awoke to find Houston in her bed. She did not know him and he did not have permission to be in her house located in the Penrose neighborhood. After Houston grabbed her, the victim was able to force him out of the house with the help of another person.
A St. Louis jury convicted Houston on Jan. 15. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 27 before St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Timothy Wilson.
Congratulations to ACA Copeland and team!
