3 National Guard soldiers convicted in 2017 sexual assault

MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - Three of four National Guard soldiers accused of involvement in a 2017 sexual assault case have pleaded guilty in Kentucky to misdemeanor sexual misconduct charges.

News outlets reported Wednesday that 28-year-old Anthony Tubolino, 22-year-old Tyler Hart and 24-year-old Jacob Ruth accepted plea deals from the Calloway Commonwealth's Attorney's Office and were recommended to serve 12-month sentences each.

They'll be formally sentenced in April.

Co-defendant 24-year-old Austin Dennis requested a jury trial on his first-degree sodomy charge.

The soldiers were charged in June 2017 after a victim accused them of supplying her with alcohol and sexually assaulting her.
