A Tyler man marries one of the women he's accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting, according to the Smith County DA's office.

Jermaine Lamar Benson, 20, pleaded guilty today to one of four counts of aggravated sexual assault. The judge gave him a 15-year sentence, but he chose a jury trial instead.

Benson is also accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting his ex-girlfriend. Both incidents happened on December 11, 2004.
