LOS ANGELES (AP) - A former student government commissioner at University of California, Los Angeles, has pleaded no contest to several charges including sexual battery and false imprisonment.

Omar Arce was arrested in April after a female student accused him of sexually assaulting her repeatedly over several months.

The city attorney’s office says after entering his plea on Wednesday, the 22-year-old was placed in custody to serve an anticipated 180-day sentence.

He was also ordered to stay away from the UCLA campus and the victim, abstain from alcohol, stay out of bars and pay restitution.

If Arce fails to comply he will be sentenced to a year in jail and be required to register as a sex offender.

Arce was commissioner of the Undergraduate Students Association Council Community Service.
