Pasadena man pleads guilty to sexually assaulting motorist

A Pasadena man accused of sexually assaulting a female motorist pleaded guilty yesterday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court to a third-degree sex offense.

Jason S. Dinsmore, 27, is scheduled to be sentenced July 13. Prosecutors and defense lawyers are expected to seek a sentence of one year in prison plus seven more years suspended, registration as a sex offender, counseling and five years' probation.

Dinsmore was charged in a January incident in which a woman told state police that Dinsmore picked her up on the side of I-97 near Glen Burnie after her vehicle overturned and then assaulted her.
