Compton, 34, of North Pole spent this week in a sexual assault and sexual abuse of a minor trial. He was found to have met a 16-year-old girl on a dating app in December of 2018. After communicating with her over the app, he hired her to come babysit his five kids. After she came to his house he began groping her over and under her clothing.

Compton was found guilty of one count of sexual assault in the first degree, three counts of sexual assault 2, one count of sexual abuse of a minor 2 with a special finding that he was an authority figure, and three counts of sexual abuse of a minor 4 with that same authority figure finding.

Compton will be sentenced at a later date. He is also currently involved in another case from between 2003-2005 where he is accused of sexually abusing a minor numerous times. That case is expected to go to trial later this month.
