A former student government commissioner at UCLA pleaded no contest to multiple counts of sexual battery and simple battery and one count of false imprisonment, City Atty. Mike Feuer announced Wednesday.
Omar Arce, 22, was arrested in April after a female student accused him of sexually assaulting her repeatedly over several months. He faced up to 4½ years in prison.
On Wednesday, Arce was placed in police custody to serve an anticipated 180-day sentence. His final sentencing was postponed for one year. He was also ordered to stay away from the UCLA campus and the victim, abstain from alcohol, stay out of bars and pay restitution.
If Arce fails to comply he will be sentenced to a year in jail and be required to register as a sex offender, according to a news release from Feuer's office.
Arce was ordered to appear in court on Dec. 23 for a restitution hearing.
