Sean Jackson, the sexually violent predator accused of assaulting a woman during an attempted carjacking in December, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Friday morning after pleading guilty to two felony counts.

Jackson, 28, pleaded guilty to one count of attempted aggravated robbery and one count of attempted second-degree assault causing injury with a deadly weapon. Per the plea agreement, Jackson received six years in prison on the attempted robbery charge and four years on the attempted assault charge. He will serve the sentences consecutively and will also serve five years of parole.

In exchange for the plea, felony attempted motor vehicle theft and menacing charges and a misdemeanor charge of third-degree assault were dismissed.

According to prosecutors, Jackson assaulted a woman while attempting to steal her car just days after he notified authorities he had moved to Boulder. He had completed his parole following a previous conviction of sexual assault and failing to register as a sex offender.

Police received a report of an assault the evening of Dec. 26 in the 1500 block of Easy Rider Lane.

The victim, who lives in the neighborhood, parked her car on the street and had gotten out to retrieve some belongings from the passenger side when police said Jackson approached her from behind and demanded her car keys.

Police said he grabbed the woman's coat with one hand and sprayed her with pepper spray with the other hand. The victim struggled with the man and was able to run to her home, where a roommate called police.

Police later found Jackson in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express, 4777 N. Broadway. Jackson was bleeding heavily from at least one of his hands, and when police tried to help him, Jackson became aggressive and threatening, officers said.
