CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — A former Oregon State University student will spend up to five years in prison after his conviction on charges related to campus-area break-ins.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports Ronald Wesley Vaughan was sentenced after pleading guilty to charges of burglary, sexual abuse and criminal trespass.

Vaughan was accused of sexually assaulting a woman while she showered in her home near the campus.

Police say a cell phone found at the scene of the woman’s assault was matched to Vaughan.

He was also accused of breaking into three dormitory rooms.

Vaughan will be supervised for three years after his release and required to register as a sex offender.

He was given credit for time served.

Defense attorney Shaun McCrea said in court that Vaughan had no history of previous crimes.
