Jensen was booked into the Dane County Jail on tentative charges of second degree sexual assault.

Second degree sexual assault includes sexual intercourse or sexual contact without consent that involves violence, causes injury or illness or is aided by one or more persons. This also includes sexual intercourse with someone who is under the age of 16, unconscious or under the influence of an intoxicant to a degree which renders that person incapable of consent. A person who committed second degree sexual assault can be imprisoned for up to 20 years and/or fined up to $10,000.
