Hermes Franca (22-12-1 NC) plead guilty to one count of first degree sexual abuse and one count of second degree unlawful penetration for sexually assaulting an underage jiu-jitsu student, according to The Oregonian. The former UFC title contender was sentenced to three-and-a-half years behind bars and must register as a sex offender.

The original charges had Franca arraigned on seven counts of sexual abuse and two counts of penetration. Most of those charges were dropped.

The incident took place in December 2010 at an academy he taught at.

Franca was staying with a buddy while training out here in Oregon. His buddy lived directly above my grandma. I saw him and didnt recognize him until he took his shirt off and I saw his tats. Its was right before all this came out

Good thing he got convicted, I guess he gets to put that mma training to use trying to protect his own sexuality now.

Not sure why this is popping up again. This was reported a couple of weeks back.

I'd take that bet...I don't think prison will be a kind place for a 155lb child molester regardless of his training.

He's in for a rough stay.....hopefully.

Hermes Franca has got to be in the running as one of the biggest falls from grace in MMA history. This dude fought for the title and lost, who knew that losing was the least of his concerns. Got popped for roids, lost most of his fights after the title shot and then ends up in prison. I would certainly hate to be Hermes Franca. I wonder if he still has that cotton candy hair, no way that shit was real.

Do we know any of the specifics? A lot of different things fall into the category of sexual abuse - all bad, but some much worse than others

Not sure on specifics but it includes multiple counts that include penetration...as for how he will do in prison you all need to understand that getting jumped, stabbed, beaten, strangled and raped by a group of people is completely different from a one on one regulated sports competition.

as the opening line says: "second degree unlawful penetration for sexually assaulting an underage jiu-jitsu student"

No shit. They should change months to years.

42 months seems unfair for the victim. knowing that in just a few years that dude will be back on the streets. even if the girl let him do these things, it doesn't mean he's not a predator.
