A jury found a Saudi Arabian air force sergeant guilty Wednesday of raping a 13-year-old boy at a Las Vegas Strip hotel last New Year's Eve.
Defendant Mazen Alotaibi remained seated, clenching his jaw but showing no outward emotion as the verdict was read in Nevada state court.
The 24-year-old Royal Saudi Air Force mechanic, who had been in the U.S. for military training, will face a minimum mandatory 35 years in state prison at sentencing Dec. 16.
Clark County District Court Judge Stefany Miley could sentence him to prison for life.
The jury of nine women and three men found Alotaibi guilty of sexual assault with a minor for forcing oral and anal sex on the boy in the bathroom of a sixth-floor room at the Circus Circus hotel, and lewdness with a child for fondling and kissing the boy on the way to the room.
Alotaibi decided not to testify in his defense.
Jurors instead saw a 70-minute videotaped police interview in which Alotaibi told detectives the boy offered sex for marijuana or money. After several minutes of denials, Alotaibi acknowledged to police that he engaged in sex with the boy.

Guess he couldn’t find a camel or a sheep.
In their culture, this isn’t considered gay.
Routine in Saudi Arabia. I’m sure he was raped as a boy, too.
Maybe his junk needs to be beheaded.
Creepy clown casino that is the biggest dump on the Las Vegas Strip.
I think Hunter Thompson said it best and I paraphrase: "Circus Circus is what the world would be like if the Nazis won the war."
The bugger should be sent back to Saudi to serve his sentence. Six feet under. Rest in pieces.
Guess he couldnt find a camel or a sheep.
How can a jury convict him of practicing his religion? Don’t we have to respect his culture? (sarc)
In 1960, I was on KP at Lackland AFB, TX. I was slinging hash at the Foreign Officers Mess Hall. Two swarthy dudes wearing flight suits sidled in front of me and I filled their trays with SOS and then I noticed their patches, which in English said they were from the Royal Saudi Air Force. Until that time, I had never seen anything so exotic. Twenty years later, I ended up at the Embassy in Saudi Arabia.
Our friends, the Saudis.
The more Saudis come to the U.S. for “military training” - the more American boys will be raped. Isn’t that exactly what Hussein Obama wants?
35 years. That’s a shame. They’ll like him where he is going.
