The sentencing capped the remaining charges against Aaron Bonds, 45, who a jury convicted in March for drugging three women in July 2012 as they went bar hopping around downtown Portsmouth.
Bonds pleaded guilty last week to one count of aggravated felonious sexual assault instead of facing a re-trial on the two sexual assault charges.
Assistant County Attorney Brad Bolton read a statement in court on Monday from the woman, who became pregnant as a result of the sexual assault.
The pregnancy was not revealed until Bonds’ sentencing on Monday. The woman said in the statement that she decided to terminate the pregnancy.
Judge N. William Delker, who presided over the trial, told Bonds that his sentence on the drug case also took into consideration the sexual assault.
Delker said he felt the sentence agreed upon by the prosecution and defense was appropriate.
The two prison terms will run concurrently. Delker ordered that Bonds, who has a prior sexual assault conviction from 2003, have no contact with the victim or her immediate family.
