FAIRBANKS (AP) -- A young Fairbanks man admitted he was responsible for a brazen daylight attack on a 33-year-old woman jogger when he changed his plea in Superior Court Tuesday afternoon.
Theodore Barley, 18, pleaded no contest to second-degree sexual assault, one of three charges filed after an Aug. 17 attack on a female jogger. Barley attacked the woman in broad daylight next to a busy street in full view of passers-by.
Prosecutors agreed to a four-year cap on prison time, and the two other charges are to be dropped.
In addition to the sexual assault term, Barley will also likely have to serve two years of a suspended sentence for his role in the theft of a car.
