A 21-year-old Dartmouth, N.S., man has been sentenced to another 18 months in jail for a brutal sexual assault in a park in the city.
Cody Charles Lemoine pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault and forcible confinement for the assault, which happened in Shubie Park in June of 2011.
Lemoine admitted to grabbing a 19-year-old woman who was jogging alone through the park. He dragged her into the bushes and assaulted her.
Lemoine turned himself into police a few days later and he's been in custody ever since.
In sentencing him Tuesday, provincial court judge Ted Tax said Lemoine must serve 54 months. He gave him credit of 35 months and 15 days for the time he's spent in jail since the attack.
That means Lemoine will not have to go to prison, but will instead serve his remaining time in a provincial jail.
Once he's served his 18 months and 15 days, Lemoine will be on two years' probation. His name goes on the national sex offender registry for two years and he must also provide a DNA sample.
Lemoine is ordered to stay away from his victim and weapons and he must abstain from drugs and alcohol.
