( AP) -- A 20-year-old former University of Iowa student has been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting another student in 2010.
The Gazette of Cedar Rapids reports that Evan Pfeifer, of Lake Barrington, Ill., was sentenced Friday. He must register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
Authorities say the victim was 19 when Pfeifer assaulted her early in the morning of Oct. 3, 2010, after a football game the day before. The woman says Pfeifer accosted her as she was walking back to her campus dorm from a party.
The woman says she didn't initially report the assault to police. She did so after she spotted Pfeifer on campus and her sister approached him and learned his name during a conversation.
