A former Fort Hays State University All-American wrestler and member of the soccer team will spend more than five and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to a pair of aggravated battery charges earlier this year.

On August 8, Efe Osaghae, St. Louis, was sentenced to a total 68 months in prison after pleading guilty to the two charges in April. He was sentenced to 34 months for each charge with to run consecutively for the total of 68 months in prison.

He will have to register as a sex offender for 25 years and he will be subject to lifetime post-release supervision.

According to court documents, the two charges stem from incidents that occurred in December 2019.

Documents said he entered the room of a 19-year-old woman on campus and assaulted her. During the investigation, the second assault was discovered.

Osaghae, who was also a former member of Fort Hays State men’s soccer team, initially was charged with five felony counts including rape and aggravated criminal sodomy.
