BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WDTN) –  A former IU student accused of raping two women at an IU frat house has been sentenced. John Enochs plead guilty to battery with moderate bodily injury.

He took a plea deal in the case and will spend one day in jail and will serve one year on probation for the bodily injury charge. Enochs was accused of raping two women at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house, according to our partners at WISH-TV.

The most recent incident happened in April 2015. According to the probable cause affidavit, the victim, who told police she had been drinking before the assault, said she was in the courtyard of the fraternity house with her friends when she went inside for the bathroom. The victim told police the next thing she remembered was being in a private room, naked, with an unknown man, having sex.

Police said surveillance video, DNA and witness statements is what led to a warrant being issued for Enochs’ arrest.

At the time of the incident, Indiana University police issued a crime alert to students and staff telling them about the sexual assault. They said another woman who received the alert told police she had been raped during a party at the same fraternity house in October 2013. Police said she gave them Enochs’ name.
