Former Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson has been found guilty of one count of sexual activity with a child.
The 28-year-old denied two charges of sexual activity with a child and was earlier found not guilty of having oral sex performed on him by a 15-year-old, but the jury at Bradford Crown Court could not reach a unanimous decision on the second charge.
The judge therefore accepted a majority verdict of 10-2 that Johnson was guilty of penetrating the schoolgirl with his fingers.
Johnson had previously pleaded guilty to one other count of sexual activity with a child and a further charge of grooming.
Sentencing is expected to occur in the next two to three weeks, with the judge today saying that a custodial sentence is an "almost inevitable outcome".
The judge said in his closing remarks today that Johnson is facing up to ten years in prison with a starting point of five years.
Johnson's counsel Orlando Pownall QC told the court today that he is to appeal the guilty verdict on one count of child sex activity.
