BREAKING NEWS: Accused rapist gets one year jail sentence on reduced charges.

A 21 year old Fairbanks was given a one year prison term, on reduced charges, stemming from an alleged sexual assault incident on the UAF campus in early 2012.

During hearings Friday morning, Marcos Camacho pleaded guilty to single counts of Attempted Sexual Assault, and Fourth Degree Assault, both Misdemeanor offenses.

As part of the agreement, Camacho must also register as a sex offender for 15 years.

Camacho was sentenced in front of State Superior Court Judge Michael MacDonald., and must turn himself in to begin serving his jail term by May 15.

The one year term is being seen as a major victory for Camacho and his defense team, led by long-time attorney Bill Satterberg.

Camacho was originally charged with First Degree Sexual Assault, and Unclassified Felony offense that carries a possible 99 year term.

According to University of Alaska Fairbanks Police, the assault took place on January 28, 2012 at a school-sanctioned UAF dance at the Wood Center.

Attorneys representing Camacho said early on that the victim consented to the sexual contact, and gave Camacho "various signs by the way she danced

with him, and other forms of affection."
