DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A man previously deemed guilty of first-degree kidnapping before his conviction and subsequent life term were overturned has now been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison on a sexual assault charge.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1GJasln ) that 37-year-old Scott R. Robinson was sentenced Tuesday in Dubuque District Court on one count of third-degree sexual assault. He had been serving life in prison without parole for the 2011 sexual assault of a woman in his Dubuque apartment, but the Iowa Supreme Court unanimously rejected that conviction in February, saying his actions didn’t equate first-degree kidnapping.

Robinson will get credit for the time he has already served. Once released, he will be placed under lifetime supervision from the Iowa Department of Corrections.
