A Douglas County judge recently revoked the probation of a 20-year-old former Kansas University student convicted of aggravated battery in connection with a sexual assault at a KU fraternity in 2010.
Andrew J. Hansen initially was charged with one count of rape, but he pleaded guilty to aggravated battery, served more than three months in jail, participated in a sex offender evaluation and agreed to perform 100 hours of community service. As a condition of his probation, he was barred from drinking alcohol.
According to an affidavit filed in Douglas County District Court, Hansen was arrested on DUI and minor in possession of alcohol charges in April in Maryville, Mo., and registered a blood-alcohol content of .279. The legal limit to drive is .08. He also tested positive for alcohol in a urine test shortly after his arrest, according to the affidavit.
According to Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson’s office, District Judge Peggy Kittel last Friday ordered Hansen to serve his original sentence in the Kansas case, which is 32 months in a Kansas Department of Corrections prison. Hansen was taken into custody and to the Douglas County Jail Friday. As of Thursday, he had not been transported to state custody.
Kittel gave Hansen credit for 109 days he had already served in jail as part of the plea agreement. In the plea, Hansen admitted he had touched a female KU student, an acquaintance, in her vaginal area after she had fallen asleep in a room at the Delta Chi fraternity house, 1245 West Campus Road, the night of Aug. 21, 2010. Attorneys said Hansen and the woman had consumed alcohol that night.
