GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- Former cop and firefighter Eric Janusz is behind bars once again.

Around 11 p.m. Friday night, Janusz was found guilty of one count of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

In the verdict, the jury said they were convinced Janusz had sex with a 16-year-old girl in the then-Mesa Sate College gym in the summer of 2000. That year, he was serving as a Grand Junction police officer.

Judge Valerie Robison ordered that Janusz immediately be taken into custody, and she revoked his bond.

Janusz will be held until May 22, 2013, when he again appears in court for his sentencing.
