PIERRE, S.D. — A Pierre man accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in a home where he had done plumbing work has been sentenced to serve 4 ½ years in prison.

Thirty-two-year-old David Timmons in June pleaded no contest to an attempted rape charge stemming from the December 2015 incident, and prosecutors dropped other charges.

The Capital Journal reports that Timmons was recently sentenced to 7 ½ years behind bars, with three years suspended. He must also register as a sex offender.
