CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A former Casper police victims’ advocate has been sentenced to three to 10 years in prison for sexual assault.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1FdW6cz) that James Holscher was sentenced Tuesday for assaulting a woman as she recovered from surgery in a local assisted living center.

Prosecutor Mike Schafer said the victim’s physical and emotional state made her comparable to a 10-year-old child.

Holscher pleaded guilty in January to second-degree sexual assault and exploitation of a vulnerable adult. He confessed he was supposed to be helping the woman get a protection order when he assaulted her.

At his sentencing, Holscher apologized for his actions.

Holscher served as the police department’s victim services coordinator for 12 years before resigning in July.
