Convicted sex offender who received controversial sentence back in jail
DENVER — A Centennial man who received a 45-day sentence for a sex crime is back in the Denver jail on a probation violation.
Jared Bates pleaded guilty to attempted sexual assault as part of a plea deal.
His victim, Maria Crow, was expecting Bates to receive a three-year prison sentence. Instead, Denver District Court Judge John Madden gave Bates a 45-day sentence and five years of probation.
Crow said she was raped while unconscious.
Bates could face a probation revocation hearing that could lead to additional time in jail.ES.AlertMe
