A Texas man accused in an Iowa City sexual assault has been sentenced to two years in jail.
 
However, Judge Chad Kepros on Wednesday suspended all but two days of that sentence for 30-year-old Jason Thomas. He was also sentenced to two years’ probation, a $625 fine and will have to register as a sex offender for the next 10 years. A five-year no-contact order with the victim was also put into effect.
 
Police say Thomas sexually assaulted a woman at an Algonquin Road residence in March 2013. The female victim says she was asleep when Thomas performed a sex act on her, waking up while Thomas was in the middle of the act.
 
The woman told police she did not consent to the act and had given no indication she wanted that sort of contact with Thomas. Per police reports, he later admitted there was no reason for him to believe the woman wanted him to perform the sex act on her.
 
Thomas was sentenced after agreeing to a plea deal under which a 3rd Degree Sexual Abuse charge was reduced to Assault with Intent to Commit Sexual Abuse. Had he been convicted on the original charge, he could have faced up to 10 years in prison.
