After a three-day jury trial in Centre County Court, Ronald P. Cramer III was found guilty of sexual assault and indecent assault of a woman in a downtown State College apartment in 2015.

Cramer, 28, of New Wilmington, was found not guilty of rape by force and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse by force, according to a release from the Centre County District Attorney's office.

He was charged in April 2015 after it was alleged he had sexually assaulted a woman in a College Avenue apartment on Feb. 15, 2015. Cramer, who had been visiting State College to coach a youth hockey game, met the woman at The Saloon earlier that evening. As they left the bar at closing time, the woman left to catch a bus and mentioned she needed to use the bathroom. Cramer invited her to use the bathroom at the nearby apartment where he was staying for the night.

While the 23-year-old woman was in the bathroom Cramer entered uninvited and she told him to leave. He then pulled down her pants and sexually assaulted her "various ways as she was saying “you don’t want to do this,”  according to the release.

The jury deliberated for two and a half hours before finding Cramer guilty of the charges of sexual intercourse and contact without consent. Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 21. Cramer faces a minimum three-to-six year sentence, according to the District Attorney's office.
