A 23-year-old Jacksonville man could get life in prison for a sexual battery that happened on the Carnival Cruise Ship Elation in February.
The Elation sails from the JAXPORT Cruise Terminal.
Brian James Holland was found guilty Wednesday by a federal jury.
According to evidence presented at his trial, the victim was a woman with an intellectual disability.
She reported the forced sexual act that took place in a hot tub to her family. Two other passengers who witnessed the incident backed up her story, according to a news release from the Federal Department of Justice.
Holland’s sentencing is set for October 22.
