CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - A northern Iowa man has been given 10 years in prison for sexually abusing a house guest.

Stephen Brodersen Jr., of Greene, was sentenced Friday. A jury had convicted him of sexual abuse.

The 47-year-old admitted in court that he briefly had sexual intercourse with the 25-year-old woman on May 21, but he said it was an accident after he had removed the woman’s pants. He also contended the woman never said no during the encounter.

Prosecutors say the woman did say no several times, but Brodersen ignored her.
