SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to almost 24 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 22-year-old woman in her Salina home in 2014.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1Q5Ojk9 ) reports 29-year-old Michael P. Darnell was sentenced to 23 years and 9 months in prison Monday. He had been found guilty of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual battery.

According to authorities, Darnell entered the woman’s home after he knocked on her door and she answered on May 15, 2014. Prosecutors say Darnell struck the woman in the face, dragged her through the house and groped her.

The woman managed to escape after convincing Darnell to go outside and smoke.

Darnell has been ordered to register as a sex offender and pay about $1,000 to the Crime Victims Compensation Fund.
