A former University of South Dakota football player has pleaded guilty to a sexual assault charge stemming from an off-campus incident last October.
Twenty-one-year-old Danny Rambo Jr. pleaded guilty to one count of sexual contact without consent with a person capable of giving consent last month, according to court documents.
Rambo Jr. previously pleaded not guilty to a second degree rape charge last December. He entered a guilty plea to the lesser charge on February 9.
Rambo Jr. will serve ten days in Clay County jail in November. Judge Cheryle Gering sentenced Rambo Jr. to 180 days in jail, but suspended 170 of those days on condition Rambo Jr. wears an electronic monitoring device and completes a counseling program.
Rambo Jr. and another former USD football player, Dale Williamson Jr., were both charged stemming from an incident on October 22.
According to court documents, both men were at the off-campus residence of a friend and fellow football player. The friend engaged in consensual sex with a woman in a separate room. Rambo Jr. and Williamson Jr. allegedly entered the room and joined the sexual encounter without the woman’s permission.
Williamson Jr. has pleaded not guilty to attempted second-degree rape.
