A plea agreement has been reached in a case against a Northwood man charged with sexual assault.

Leo Borgen was in court in Grand Forks today.

Authorities say Borgen gave another man some painkillers and had sexual contact with him while he was passed out.

The charge is a Class-A felony.

Court documents indicate the victim didn't know what was happening at the time.

Borgen faces up to 20 years in prison.

He will be in court again for sentencing on October 4th.
