A man with learning difficulties has been convicted of sexually assaulting a boy under 13.

Paul Biggs, of Over Norton, near Chipping Norton, was yesterday found guilty of carrying out the offence on September 1, 2007, against a boy who cannot be named for legal reasons.

A jury at Oxford Crown Court cleared Biggs of one further count of sexual assault, two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, and one count of rape.

He was released on bail and will be sentenced on June 12.
