Former Mukwonago star athlete Dominic Cizauskas sentenced to 12 months in jail for third-degree sexual assault
Madison - A judge sentenced former Mukwonago High School sports standout Dominic Cizauskas today to one year in county jail and three years probation for third degree sexual assault.
He will also need to comply with sex offender registry requirements, no contact order and other stipulations.
Cizauskas was found guilty on June 18 of third degree sexual assault in Dane County after a two-day trial played out the details of a Dec. 14, 2013 incident on the UW-Madison campus where, Cizauskas, during his official visit to UW as a football recruit, met with an acquaintance in her dorm room and allegedly sexually assaulted her.
Cizauskas had testified that the sex was consensual, which the two had done before.
Cizauskas, a star Mukwonago High School athlete who graduated in 2014, testified that upon arriving on campus he had five shots of spiced rum in a 1.5 hour period and had approximately two sips of a mixed drink.
The woman had said in her complaint that Cizauskas told her he had consumed 10 shots in a half-hour. Cizauskas said while he told the woman that he had been drinking, he does not recall telling her how much he had and said he did not feel drunk, but "buzzed."
After being let into the dorm building by an acquaintance and keyed up to the appropriate floor in the elevator by a stranger, the complainant said Cizauskas entered her room through the unlocked door. He said he knocked and she answered.
The woman said she told Cizauskas she didn't want to have sex, made excuses and told him to stop. She said he continued for approximately 10 minutes before he did eventually stop.
Third degree sexual assault, which Cizauskas was found guilty of, is defined as sexual intercourse with a person without the consent of that person. It is a class G felony.
