A former UW-River Falls student was sentenced to eight years prison Wednesday in Pierce County Circuit Court.
Andres Moreno-Richey, 22, received terms of five and three years for third degree sexual assault and burglary, respectively. Pierce County Circuit Court Judge Robert Wing ordered those terms to be consecutive. Wing also ordered Moreno-Richey to be on extended supervision for nine years after he is released.
Wing stated that, with no explanation given for what he did, Moreno-Richey is a “great likelihood to reoffend” and the need to protect the public is high.
Moreno-Richey was charged with third degree sexual assault relating to an incident in August 2008. The burglary charge resulted from an incident last January. He was also sentenced to nine months jail for fourth degree sexual assault. That term will run concurrent to his prison sentence.
