A Wisconsin teenager was given two years probation after he was accused of sodomizing a male student at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The 19 year-old pled no contest last week to first-degree sexual assault charges. The judge did not give him jail time because the assailant was remorseful and apologetic and believes he acted out of character.
The teen's probation includes six months of electronic monitoring, counseling, mediation, and restitution along with six months in a county jail with work release. He must also stay out trouble for two years, write a letter of apology to the victim, and complete 80 hours of community service to have the sexual assault charges dropped. The man, however, was charged with misdemeanor battery and false imprisonment. Both students have since voluntarily left the university.
