Former Central Michigan University student Ian Elliott pleaded no contest to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct on Friday.
That's a lesser charge than what Elliott initially pleaded to last summer.
But the Michigan Attorney General's Office agreed to let Elliott withdraw his previous plea.
That's because the former prosecutor in the case, the former assistant attorney general, had an inappropriate relationship with one of Elliott's victims.
Elliott is currently in Isabella County jail. He'll be re-sentenced next month.

Ian Elliott, a former student body president at Central Michigan University convicted of sexually assaulting a fellow student, likely won’t serve out the rest of his one-year sentence in prison. Instead, he’s filing a motion requesting to withdraw his plea entirely (as reported by the Morning Sun,) vacate his sentence, and take a new, more lenient plea deal offered by the Michigan attorney general’s office.
