MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Former Minnesota football player Dominic Jones was sentenced Thursday to a year in the county workhouse after being convicted of criminal sexual conduct.
Hennepin County District Judge Marilyn Rosenbaum also sentenced the 21-year-old to a stayed four-year prison term, $1,000 restitution and seven years probation.
He will be allowed to leave the workhouse only for school or work. He must report there by July 7.
In March, a jury convicted him of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, which involves performing a sex act on a victim without her consent. It acquitted him on a rape charge.
Earl Gray, Jones' attorney, said he will appeal the conviction and the sentence.
Jones testified that the victim consented to the sex act in April 2007.
The victim, who was 18 at the time, testified during the trial that she drank up to eight shots of vodka with another player and didn't remember anything between when she was placed on a couch and the next morning.
On Thursday, the victim read a statement in court. She said, ``I drank into myself helplessness ... but I did not ask to be raped.'' She added, ``Yes, I have been sexually assaulted, and no, I will never get over it.''
Jones was kicked off the team after the allegations emerged. Three other former players involved in the case were never charged.
