Prosser man found guilty of rape

BENTON COUNTY, Wash. -- A Prosser man has been convicted on multiple counts, including rape.

Jonathan Kuhlman attacked two teenagers last year in the Benton City area.

The 42-year old preyed on girls near the high school. He plied them with pot and alcohol to take advantage of them.

Kuhlman has been out on bail awaiting trial. But now that he's convicted of multiple felony sex crimes, he was immediately taken into custody.

Kuhlman will be sentenced in July.
