A former UW student has been sentenced to 3 years in prison, for campus sexual assaults. A Dane County judge also sentenced 22-year-old Alec Cook to 5 years extended supervision for those crimes, plus 3 additional years of probation for other felonies.
He must also register as a sex offender for 15 years after prison and probation. Prosecutors had recommended 19 1/2 years in prison, 20 years probation, and a lifetime sexual offender registration.
Cook pleaded guilty earlier this year to third-degree sexual assault, strangulation and stalking. Eleven women were alleged victims of the Edina, Minnesota native.
