A Guam-based sailor is facing life in prison following his conviction Tuesday for sexually assaulting a 47-year-old woman in May.

A Guam attorney general spokesman said a jury in Guam’s Superior Court convicted Petty Officer 3rd Class Doyle Lamont Perry of 12 separate felonies: three counts each of first-, second- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct; assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct, aggravated assault and terrorizing.

Perry, assigned to the Guam-based USS Frank Cable, was charged with sexually assaulting the woman at Adelup Beach Park on May 27. According to court documents, Perry drove the victim there after meeting her earlier in the evening and attacked her while they talked in his car.

He then dragged her from the car and sexually assaulted her on the beach, documents state. Two fishermen discovered her there at 5:30 a.m.

An hour earlier, according to court documents, police had stopped Perry on a routine traffic matter and noticed sand on his face, neck and clothing. He also appeared intoxicated, according to the documents.

Assistant Attorneys General Emily Dawson and Lewis Littlepage prosecuted the case. Dawson said the victim had been brutally beaten and suffered injuries including internal bleeding and a fractured pelvis. She also had been tossed from a 13-foot-high wall, Dawson said.

During the trial, the victim identified Perry as her attacker.

An attorney general office spokeswoman said the government presented DNA evidence from a pair of boxer shorts found in a trash can on the Cable that connected Perry to the victim.

Twenty-four witnesses testified during the two-week trial. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 15.
