The trial for a Laramie man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in October begins today in Albany County District Court.

The 25-year-old man will be tried on one count of first degree sexual assault and one count of kidnapping and confinement. If convicted on all counts, he faces up to life in prison.

According to court documents, a Laramie Police officer responded to a report of a possible sexual assault at the Ranger Bar on Oct 29 at 2:31 a.m. The victim told the officer that while at the bar, the defendant held her against her will in the women’s bathroom and sexually assaulted her.

The victim went to Ivinson Memorial Hospital for a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, or SANE exam.

The officer obtained video footage from the Ranger that appeared to corroborate the victim’s report. The victim identified the defendant from a six-photo line-up on Nov. 4.

The man’s trial is scheduled to go through Friday, June 23.

Note: The names of defendants in sex crime cases are not used until a conviction, or guilty or no contest pleas unless the defendant is a person of public interest or trust. The defendant’s name has not been run in this case.
