A Fayette County jury on Friday found a Florida man guilty of 10 counts of sexual assault.

Scott Alan Kelly, 40, of Orlando was found not guilty of one count of aggravated indecent assault and one count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.

A jury deliberated for about four hours before returning the verdicts to the courtroom of Judge Steve Leskinen.

The two-day trial was Kelly's second time in court on those charges.

In June, he was found guilty of two counts of corruption of minors. Leskinen declared a mistrial when the jury foreman said the panel could not reach a unanimous verdict on 12 related charges.

Kelly was accused of sexually assaulting a boy and girl, now adults, in the late 1990s in homes in Uniontown, Connellsville and Markleysburg.

The charges he was found of guilty of on Friday included three counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, one count of statutory sexual assault, two counts of aggravated indecent assault and four counts of indecent assault.

Leskinen said he would refer the case to the Pennsylvania Sexual Offenders Assessment Board to determine if Kelly should be classified as a sexually violent predator.

He will set a sentencing date following that assessment.

Kelly was returned to Fayette County Prison in lieu of posting $150,000 bond.
