A man from Scottsdale accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting an unconscious woman in 2016 has changed his plea to guilty and could be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Rodolfo Andres Ramirez pleaded guilty on Thursday in Maricopa County Superior Court to charges of sexual assault and attempted sexual assault.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 10 and according to prosecutors, Ramirez is facing between seven and 10 years in prison.
The 29-year-old ex-professional MMA fighter had pleaded not guilty in November 2016, a month after the alleged assault.
Ramirez was accused of kidnapping an intoxicated 22-year-old woman after she left a Scottsdale bar.
According to Scottsdale police, surveillance video reveals Ramirez carrying the woman over his shoulder to a parking garage.
Ramirez at that point sexually assaulted the woman in public, according to police.
