Paraplegic man found guilty of raping a 14-year-old girl

A PARAPLEGIC has been found guilty of raping a 14-year-old girl on a trampoline at his North Rockhampton home.

The jury handed down their verdict in the Rockhampton District Court on Friday.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was on trial for raping a family friend's daughter in 2008.

He was able-bodied at the time, but is now wheelchair-bound due to a gunshot wound.

The man will be sentenced later this year.
