A Watertown man was sentenced Friday in Jefferson County Court to 2½ years in state prison for having sexual intercourse with a minor in May.
Andrew M. Thomas, 23, whose last known address was 613 Franklin St., also will have to undergo an additional five years of supervision upon his release from prison and will be ordered to register with the state as a sex offender after pleading guilty Aug. 13 to third-degree rape. He had been charged with having intercourse with a 16-year-old girl May 5 in Watertown.
Mr. Thomas was sentenced in November 2006 in Jefferson County Court to 10 years probation after he pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual abuse in a case involving a boy under the age of 11. The sex offender registry lists Mr. Thomas as a Level 2 offender as a result of that conviction.
