An Ohio college student originally charged with rape -- in what authorities said was a sexual assault on an unconscious woman -- has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Nicolas Cristescu, a Miami University student from Cleveland, had previously pleaded guilty to gross sexual imposition as part of a plea deal. Charges of rape, sexual battery, and misdemeanor voyeurism were dismissed.

Prosecutors said Cristescu recorded himself having sex with the woman after giving her a drug that rendered her unconscious in October.

He will be classified as a Tier I sex offender.
