NEWARK, N.J. — A New Jersey man was convicted Friday for sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl.

Gery Destra, 21, of Maplewood, was found guilty of aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child for incidents that occurred when the child was 6 and 7 years old.

"It took a great deal of bravery and courage for the child to come to court, much less talk about something so traumatizing before the jury," said Assistant Prosecutor Kathleen Lyons-Boswick, who tried the case.
