(BLOOMINGTON) - A former IU lecturer was sentenced to probation Wednesday after he plead guilty to criminal confinement following being accused of sexual assault in 2016.

Guo Ping Wang was sentenced to two years of probation following a guilty plea for criminal confinement.

Wang was charged July 2016 with sexual battery and criminal confinement in connection with a 2015 assault of an IU ballet student. He was fired from the university back in May of 2016 following an assault that was reported to campus police on March 28th.

Wang's sexual battery charge was dismissed, it is unclear at this time if he has gained employment at another university since the allegation.

Wang allegedly brought the student into his office to practice stretches. He began to kiss her, and she pushed him away.

She stood to leave, but Wang closed the door and blocked her from exiting. He then allegedly sexually assaulted her with his hands before a noise distracted him, and the student ran away.

According to his online bio, Wang is a native of China who studied ballet at the Ballet Department of the Shanghai Dance School and in the graduate program at the Jacobs School of Music. He has served on the faculty of the School of Ballet Chicago and as a guest teacher and coach for the Indiana University Ballet Theater.
