ARDMORE, OK -- A Carter County man accused of rape has been found guilty. 

Today 55-year-old Danny Reisman was found guilty of raping a former family member in December of 2011.

Reisman argued that the act was consensual.  

But, prosecutors say the victim is developmentally disabled and un-able to consent. 

The jury has recommended a sentence of 25 years in prison.  

Sentencing is scheduled for March 6th.

"The defendant was charged with rape in the first degree of raping a person with unsound mind," said Carter County D.A. Craig Ladd.  "In this case it was a developmentally disabled adult that lived in the home with him." 

The jury has recommended a sentence of 25 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for march 6th.
