The 21-year-old pleaded down to third-degree sexual assault.

A 21-year-old La Crosse man pleaded guilty to forcing an underage girl at gunpoint to have sex with him. 

Jeremy Wrencher pleads guilty to a reduced charge of third-degree sexual assault from the Aug. 23 incident.

According to the the criminal complaint, then 20-year-old Wrencher and his brother, while holding a gun to the girl's head, forced both oral and sexual intercourse on the 14-year-old.

Wrencher could get five years in prison when he's sentenced this summer.

Wrencher had been scheduled to go to trial next week, but it was determined that a trial might be harmful to the victim.

The district attorney originally had charged both Wrencher and his brother with gang-raping the teenager but charges against the brother were dropped.
