However, the 33-year-old, of Wooster, Ohio, was defended by the child’s mum even after she listened to the girl’s harrowing testimony.
The little girl told how Bryant sexually assaulted her while babysitting in January 2018, the Wooster Daily Record reported.
She said: “He told me to take my clothes off and lay down on the bed.”
But then the child’s mother told jurors: “I don’t believe that (Bryant) would even be physically capable of doing anything to any child.”
The woman also revealed her love for the fiend saying: “Just because I wasn’t technically in a relationship with him doesn’t mean that I didn’t love him.
“It didn’t mean that I didn’t care for him. It didn’t mean that I didn’t want the best for him in everything throughout his life.”

The mum – who can’t be named for legal reasons – said she’d met Bryant on Facebook in October 2016, when he was already a registered sex offender.
During his trial last October, Bryant was convicted of two counts of gross sexual imposition, but acquitted of six more serious charges including rape and sexual battery.
His lawyer says he plans to appeal his convictions.
