PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A man accused of sexually assaulting a woman he met on a Web site for LDS singles has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Thirty-four-year-old Sean Register of Orem was originally charged with first-degree felony aggravated sexual assault. But prosecutors agreed to drop the charge to third-degree felony aggravated assault, if he entered a guilty plea.

Under the plea agreement, prosecutors agreed not to seek prison time, although jail could be an option.

Register, a former Utah State Prison corrections officer, set up a meeting last September with the woman after a few online chats and phone calls.

Court records say the two met and went to Register's home to watch a movie. After the movie was over, the woman says Register sexually assaulted her.

His sentencing is set for September 20th.
