A Lakewood man accused of assaulting a woman with a stun gun last year pleaded guilty Thursday to reduced charges and was sentenced to 15 days in jail and 15 days on electronic home monitoring.
Stephen Hanby, 59, had been charged with attempted second-degree rape and second-degree assault with sexual motivation.
He instead pleaded guilty to patronizing a prostitute, making a false statement to a police officer and fourth-degree assault as part of his plea deal, said his lawyer, Michael Clark.
Pierce County prosecutors alleged Hanby found the woman through a website known for prostitution advertisements and arranged to hire her for sex March 10, 2015.

The woman later told investigators Hanby shocked her with a Taser, hit her with the device and then tackled her when she tried to flee, court records show.
Hanby told police he never tried to rape the woman and used the Taser in self-defense when a man appeared and demanded cash, the records show.
