LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A 20-year-old man will be sentenced in August after pleading no contest to an assault on a female student at a University of Kansas dormitory.

Jeremy R. Ruzas was arrested in February after a 19-year-old Kansas student report she had been assaulted in her room at Oliver Hall.

Prosecutors said Ruzas entered the woman's room uninvited and was drinking before the woman's friends made him leave. But he returned later and assaulted the woman while she was in bed.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/14C6dqe ) that Ruzas was initially charged with aggravated sexual battery and burglary but pleaded no contest Monday to aggravated battery.

Ruzas left the university after his arrest.
