George Loggins Jr. of Hildebran was sentenced to prison this week after being convicted of second-degree sex offense, prosecutors said.

A Burke County man has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison after being convicted of sexually assaulting a woman who had hired him to do work in her house, prosecutors said.

George Loggins Jr., 66, of Hildebran, was sentenced earlier this week in Catawba County Superior Court to between three years, 10 months and nine years, eight months in prison. He was convicted of second-degree sex offense, according to prosecutors.

Loggins was accused of attacking a 49-year-old Catawba County woman in April 2013, prosecutors said.

As part of his sentence, authorities said, Loggins will be required to register with the N.C. Sex Offender Registry and will be subject to satellite-based monitoring upon his release from prison.
