A Boulder man who reportedly admitted raping a woman at his Folsom Street home in 2012 was sentenced to 10 years of intensive supervised probation today after pleading guilty to attempted sexual assault, according to court officials.
Timothy Jeremiah Young, 36, will be required to register as a sex offender.
Young pleaded guilty to attempted sexual assault in June. In exchange, prosecutors dropped two sexual assault charges.
According to a police report, a woman told police she drove into Boulder from Longmont on May 12, 2012, to go dancing and drinking. She eventually lost track of the people she was with and was unable to reach a friend she had planned to stay with.
Young -- whom the woman said she considered a longtime friend -- invited her to stay at his house. The woman told investigators she agreed as long as he didn't try to have sex with her. The woman did admit that on several occasions in the past, she had kissed Young and admitted to having feelings toward him, and said Young had been sending her suggestive texts all night.
After getting back to his house -- where the woman said two other people were sleeping in the living room -- she told police they smoked marijuana before she lay down in the bed while Young slept on the floor. A while later, the woman said Young lay down next to her and began touching and grabbing her before raping her, according to the report.
The woman left Young's house and was able to find a cab, which dropped her off at her friend's house, where she spent the night, according to the report. She went to Boulder Community Hospital the next day and reported the rape.
According to police records, the woman later called Young at detectives' request, and police recorded the conversation, in which Young at one point said, "I fully understand I raped you."
