A Roane County man couldn’t convince a jury of his innocence during a two-day trial in criminal court last week.

Roger A. Beu Jr. was found guilty of sexual battery by an authority figure.

The jury returned the verdict on Friday.   

Court documents listed Beu’s address as 211 West Cliff Drive.

Beu, 50, was indicted by the Roane County grand gury in February 2009.

The crime he was convicted of occurred in May 2008.

According to the indictment, Beu had supervisory or disciplinary power over the victim and used such authority to accomplish the sexual contact.
