MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A former University of Wisconsin football recruit has been sentenced to a year in jail for sexually assaulting a woman during a visit to the Madison campus last December.

A judge also sentenced 18-year-old Dominic Cizauskas on Monday to probation after his jail term, and he will have to register as a sex offender.

The linebacker from Mukwonago was found guilty in June of third-degree sexual assault of an acquaintance in her dorm room.

The woman and Cizauskas testified that they had consensual sex in the past. Prosecutors argued that no matter what had happened before, the woman did not want to have sex with him that night and said no.

The district attorney wanted Cizauskas to serve one to two years. Cizauskas' attorney sought probation.
