MOUNT PLEASANT (AP) - A former guard at a state prison in southwestern Pennsylvania has been cleared of a felony sexual assault charge for having sex with a 14-year-old girl he thought was 19.

The girl acknowledged telling 32-year-old Brian Dulkis, of Arona, that she was 19, but Westmoreland County prosecutors charged him with the felony because they say he should have known better than to believe her.

A jury deliberated just 40 minutes Wednesday before acquitting Dulkis of the felony and convicting him only of corruption of minors, a misdemeanor. He'll be sentenced in about three months.

Dulkis was a guard at the state prison in Somerset when a county park policeman found him having sex in his pickup truck on Feb. 18, 2011, near the Bridgeport Dam in Mount Pleasant Township.

His attorney was pleased with the verdict.
