KAMLOOPS, B.C. - A jury in Kamloops, B.C., has found a community support worker guilty of sexual assault.

Michael Hume was also found guilty of forcible confinement and uttering threats on Friday.

The 48-year-old Lytton man was accused of shaving a young man's pubic region after a night of drinking in August 2013, before giving him $50 and warning him not to tell anyone.

During the trial Hume claimed the young man had made up the story after he would not hand over $200, in what Hume described as an attempted extortion.

Family and friends of the victim hugged following the verdict, which a 12-person jury returned in four hours.

Hume will be sentenced at a later date. (Kamloops This Week)
