ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A former contract worker at the Radford Army Ammunition Plant has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for sexually assaulting three fellow workers.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 39-year-old Joshua Linkous also will be on probation for 15 years after his release, and will be required to register as a sex offender.

Linkous pleaded guilty in June to one count of aggravated sexual abuse by force and two counts of abusive sexual contact. According to a written statement of facts submitted to the court, two of the incidents occurred in the summer of 2014 and the other occurred in either 2010 or 2011.
