The Union County Prosecutor's office says Dr. James Mauti was sentenced Friday.

The Springfield-based specialist in sports and internal medicine was arrested in August 2007 on charges that he assaulted a 32-year-old woman in 2006 after sedating her for a medical procedure. The victim had previously worked for Mauti.

He was convicted by a jury in December 2012.

Mauti must register as a sex offender under Megan's Law upon his release and be placed on lifetime parole supervision.
