Plea bargain reached in sex assault charges


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A plea bargain is reached with a former UW-Eau Claire student accused of sexually assaulting a child in his dorm room.

Cody Carlton was 19 when he was charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy on two different occasions. Carlton pleaded no contest Tuesday. He won't serve any jail time, but must get a sex offender assessment.

If he stays out of trouble for two years, the charge will be reduced to disorderly conduct. Carlton also faces a child sexual assault charge in Chippewa County.
