EVANSTON — Charles L. Jackson of Ogden, Utah, and Mesa, Ariz., was sentenced April 10 after being convicted of sexual assault in the third degree April 4 in a jury trial.
“To find yourself assaulted in your own home does not warrant only probation,” prosecutor Dean Stout stated of the case. He recommended a sentence 2 1/2 to six years in prison for Jackson.
Defense counsel in the case noted Jackson had a clean record, and offered the court an independent psychological evaluation done in Salt Lake City, along with a letter of recommendation, while asking for leniency for the defendant.
Jackson was sentenced to 1 1/2 to five years in a Wyoming penal institution, alcohol treatment when and if appropriate, and consideration for the state’s honor farm program.
Due to Jackson’s inability to pay, a $150 fee to be paid to the Crime Victim’s Fund, along with $75 for a substance abuse evaluation, and public defender fees, were suspended.
