A 19 year-old University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student plead no contest today to first-degree charges of sexual assault after sodomizing a fellow student last fall in the dorms. The judge did not give the man prison time, but instead will dismiss the charge if the student stays out of trouble for two years, finishes 80 hours of community service, and writes a letter of apology to the victim.
He was also charged with misdemeanor battery and, with this charge, he will be on probation for two years with six months in a county jail with work release and six months of electronic monitoring, mediation, conseling, and restitution. The assailant and the victim, both freshman, have voluntarily left UW-L.
