BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man serving 30 years in prison for

multiple sexual assaults in the Grand Forks area has had an extra

year added to his sentence because of a pair of failed prison

escapes last summer.

Thirty-five-year-old Paul Sambursky pleaded guilty on Thursday

to four felony counts related to his July attempts to escape from

the North Dakota State Penitentiary in Bismarck.

Defense attorney Kent Morrow said the sentence of five years in

prison with all but the one year suspended was "reasonable."

Sambursky was convicted of sexual assaults in and around Grand

Forks, including on the University of North Dakota campus, in 2001

and 2002. He was a student studying criminal justice at the time.
