JUNEAU (AP) -- A man accused of raping and beating a woman while holding her captive in an abandoned downtown house in April pleaded no contest Monday to felony sexual assault.
As part of a plea-bargain agreement with Donald Seaman, 46, the state dropped counts of burglary, kidnapping and assault.
Seaman was arrested after a 46-year-old woman appeared bleeding at a Juneau homeless shelter and said a man named ''Don'' had attacked her.
According to documents filed by Assistant District Attorney Sue McLean, Seaman on April 14 led the woman to a vacant house, where he sexually assaulted her and repeatedly beat her. She escaped the next morning.
Superior Court Judge Larry Weeks scheduled a sentencing hearing for Feb. 27.
