Michael Marren, former head of the Bensalem Police Department's special-victims unit, has been convicted of sexually assaulting a woman.
A Bucks County jury on Friday convicted Marren, a former sergeant, of aggravated indecent assault and indecent assault. The panel acquitted him of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and sexual assault.
Prosecutors alleged that Marren assaulted the 23-year-old woman, a volunteer emergency medical technician, in a bathroom after a night of drinking to mourn the death of a paramedic. Marren testified that the woman made advances to him.
Defense attorney Jack McMahon called the case an "aberration" and said he hopes his client's background and service will be taken into account when he is sentenced.
