PITTSFIELD -- A 17-year-old in Berkshire County has been found guilty of rape. 

The Berkshire County District Attorney's Office says Dylan Welch raped a 14-year-old girl in a wooded area in Pittsfield in October of 2019. The DA's Office says he caused her significant bodily injury. 

The office says the victim had to wait a long time for justice because of the pandemic. The trial was only the second in the county since court closures due to COVID-19. 

Welch will be sentenced at a later date.
