A Smith County jury is expected to sentence a man convicted of attempting to sexually assault a woman on the UT Tyler campus last July on Friday.
Dearion D'Shon Dews, 19, faces either probation or up to 10 years in prison for the third-degree felony offence.
Dews was convicted after two hours of deliberation on Thursday. Dews' victim testified that a man fitting his description grabbed her, groped her and touched her inappropriately as she was jogging near the corner of Old Omen and Varsity. The man ran away after he saw a car approaching.
