Man sentenced for sexual assault

A man has been sentenced to two years less a day followed by 18 months probation for a brutal sexual assault of a young woman.

Tyler Jordan Roth, 25, was issued the term Tuesday during a B.C. Supreme Court hearing at the Prince George court house.

Crown prosecution had been seeking as much as three years in jail for Roth, noting the serious injuries and long-lasting psychological trauma the victim has suffered.

Defence counsel argued for 18 months in jail followed by a term of probation, noting Roth's career as an engineer is now in grave doubt as a result of his actions.

Sentences less than two years are served in provincial institutions.

The court has heard that a grossly-intoxicated Roth talked his way into the woman's home and then used his size and strength to subdue the woman and force himself on her. The attack occurred in January 2017.
