A residence hall assistant at the University of Florida who was arrested for sexually assaulting a female student last month was allowed to walk free on bond after a judge deemed him to be a “high-achieving” senior.
Ian Milaski, 21, was also given a break on the bond — with the same judge lowering his initial $125,000 amount on account of Hurricane Dorian “threatening his southern Florida home” and “his obligations as a double-major” who is “slated to graduate in May 2020,” WCJB reports.
“[Milaski] personally performed more than 210 hours of community service in the last two years,” the judge wrote in an emergency motion last Friday, granting the reduced bond and Milaski’s release.
The young man was told to have no contact with the victim, who is described as a young female student who lived in the dorms.
She told police that Milaski had asked her to bring him some water on Aug. 25 — claiming he was drunk and in need of some help. When the woman arrived, he allegedly tried to “make out” with her and shoved his hand down her pants in an attempt to sexually assault her. She fled and later reported the incident to authorities.
The female student also claimed to have encountered Milaski — a business administration and economics major who describes himself on Facebook as a head teaching assistant at the UF Heavener School of Business — at her dorm while she was sleeping later that night.
He was allegedly standing in her doorway and she yelled at him to leave, according to cops.
Milaski has been ordered to stay out of Alachua County, where UF is located, unless he’s attending a “necessary event.”
