DANBURY, Conn. -- A 21-year-old William Street man has been sentenced to prison time for his role in the April 2013 sexual assault of an 18-year-old woman in the Hamrabee Center, according to newstimes.com.

Jalenn Jackson was sentenced this week to 14 years in prison suspended after 7 1/2 years and followed by 10 years of probation, according to newstimes.com.

Jackson and Dylan Kennedy, 23, lured the woman to the community center at 54 West St. after meeting her outside a downtown nightclub earlier that April night, according to newstimes.com, which reported that Kennedy was sentenced last year to 10 years in prison for his part in the crime.

According to newstimes.com, the woman initially told authorities that she had blacked out during the attack. Days later, she identified Jackson as one of her attackers after he friended her on Facebook, according to newstimes.com.
