	Michelle Martinez also known as Miguel Martinez was convicted Thursday

If found guilty, Martinez could face up to 70 years in prison.

Miguel Martinez, who also uses the name Michelle, was convicted of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old inside a bathroom.

The jury trial for a Casper resident charged with sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl began Monday.

It is unknown whether the attack happened in a private or public bathroom.

The girl was invited into the bathroom on March 23 by Martinez, who touched the girl's breasts and genitalia before penetrating her, according to reports. Martinez then penetrated the child. According to Casper Star Tribune, the incident occurred in a Casper, Wyoming during a gathering of family and friends.

Nurses at Wyoming Medical Center then found redness and abrasions on the girl's genitalia. Martinez turned "noticeably hostile and defensive". Martinez also said the child was "talking crap" on the day the abuse occurred.

During the trial, a video of the girl discussing the assault and rape to a forensic interviewer from the Children's Advocacy Project was played.

Martinez was found to be drunk on the night of the assault and had a breathalyser reading of 0.22, which was four times the legal limit of 0.05.

Martinez said the accusations were a "publicity stunt" before refusing to speak further with the detective.

Martinez, who pleaded not guilty to both counts on Wednesday in Natrona County District Court, was later arrested while extremely intoxicated on a couch in a home in Evansville.

He will receive his sentence at a later date.
