A jury has found the director of the Hauraki Rail Trail guilty of assaulting a female after a three-day trial in Hamilton last week. 

Peter Foster Maynard - represented by Auckland lawyer Marie Dyhrberg QC - was fighting three charges in the Hamilton District Court. 

However, the jury returned not guilty verdicts on two charges of intentional damage from June 16, 2012, but found Maynard guilty of assaulting a female on June 22, 2012. 

Maynard was convicted by Judge David Ruth and ordered to pay emotional harm reparation to the victim of $500.
