A 23-year-old Oronoco man has been sentenced for sexual assaults that occurred in a Gustavus Adolphus College dorm room. Justin Scott Dewitz was sentenced Monday to a one-year stayed jail sentence that won’t be executed if he completes four years of probation which includes 40 hours of community service, a sex offender group treatment program and he must register as a predatory offender. Two Gustavus students reported they met Dewitz at a party and allowed him to sleep in a dorm room with them in December 2015. One student reported she was sexually assaulted while she slept. Another student reported she had univited sexual contact with her.
