An Augusta County man was found guilty of multiple sex offenses against a woman Thursday.

Carlos Ortiz-Perez, 38, was convicted of rape, object sexual penetration and strangulation of the female victim. The incident took place November 2012.

Ortiz-Perez denied having harmed the woman when he took the witness stand Thursday afternoon.  The defense said it was just a night that went out of hand.

But the prosecution presented plenty of evidence against him. The victim herself took the witness stand, and then the prosecution presented her undergarments and photos of bruises.

Oritz-Perez faces up to life in prison for these charges and will remain in custody.
