JUNEAU (AP) -- A former resident of a halfway house who tried to sexually assault another halfway house inmate will spend the next two years in prison.
Ryan Robert Hendrickson, 24, was found guilty of one felony count of attempted sexual assault earlier this week. He was sentenced Thursday by Juneau Superior Court Judge Larry Weeks.
As part of a plea agreement, Hendrickson will serve a sentence of two years. Once he is released, he will remain on probation for a prior sexual abuse of a minor conviction in Kenai.
Hendrickson will be required to get sex offender treatment and must continue to get counseling for a mental disability sustained 10 years ago when he sustained a head injury in a four-wheeler accident.
According to court records, Hendrickson was a resident of Taku House on Nov. 23 when the victim said she woke up to find him on top of her and attempting to have sex. The woman pushed Hendrickson off and he left her room.
Hendrickson will be eligible for release in about one year and four months.
