No jail time for student accused of assault

Posted under 3620edc7-2717-499b-88ae-17b98eafcf5f

A La Crosse County judge did not give a 19 year-old University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student jail time after he pled no contest to charges of first degree sexual assault. He is accused of foricibly sodomizing another male student last fall. The victim's parents demanded a long prison sentence for their son's assailant.

Instead, the judge charged him with misdemeanor battery and false imprisonment and sentenced him to two years probation. If the man has no other criminal charges brought against him during this time, completes 80 hours of community services, and writes an apology letter to the victim, the judge will dismiss the charge. He will have to complete six months in jail on work release and six months of electronic monitoring, mediation, counseling, and restitution.
