A jury is set to deliver its verdict Friday in the case of a man charged with kidnapping and raping a 10-year-old girl in Los Angeles, before releasing her and fleeing to Mexico.

Tobias Summers has pleaded not guilty to 38 counts in the case.

Jurors reached a verdict Thursday. It will be read Friday morning in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Prosecutors say the 34-year-old Summers kidnapped the girl from her bedroom in the early-morning hours of March 27, 2013. They say Summers sexually assaulted her in numerous locations in the city before dropping her off. She was found near a Starbucks 12 hours after she was kidnapped.

Summers was arrested a month later in a Mexican village where he'd checked himself into a rehabilitation facility under a fake name.
