Following prison, Malone will be required to register as a sex offender.

Authorities said Malone used his college card to enter Grossman/Lohe Hall on Feb. 4, 2018. Once inside, he touched the groin and buttocks of a sleeping female student and the thighs of two other sleeping students. He also left a semen stain on a comforter in a fourth dorm room that was unoccupied.

Malone was arrested in January 2019, and he pleaded in May.
