A New London Superior Court jury found former Norwich Assembly of God Pastor Charles Johnson guilty this morning of sexually assaulting a young girl five years ago.

One juror, a female day-care provider, wept as the jury was polled by the court clerk.

Johnson was taken into custody after Judge Stuart M. Schimelman raised is bond from $150,000 to $500,000.

Johnson faces up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced on Jan. 26.
