Zachariah Sitterding charged with sexually assaulting woman while she was passed out

FLORENCE, Ky. -- A Boone County man is behind bars after admitting to sexually assaulting a woman while she was passed out.

Investigators say the victim was incapable of consent since she was passed out or asleep at the time. She woke up while Sitterding was accosting her.

Scheben said Sitterding confessed to the crimes.

The suspect is charged with first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree sodomy, both felonies. He is being held at the Boone County Detention Center in lieu of a $10,000 bond.

No other details were released.
