WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - There will be no jail time for a 25 year old Clayton man, who had been indicted on rape and other charges.

Derrick Nier was sentenced in Jefferson County Court Monday to 6 years probation and will have to register with the state as a Level 1 sex offender.

He pleaded guilty in October to a misdemeanor count of sexual misconduct.

Nier was accused of forcing a 23 year old female into sexual intercourse last January and providing a false statement to investigators.

A Jefferson County grand jury indicted him on June on the following counts:

- first-degree rape

- third-degree rape

- making a punishable written statement
