The vice president of a well-known luxury home building company in East Amherst was sentenced Wednesday to one year on probation after pleading guilty to third-degree sexual assault.

Henry Jurek III, 34, vice president of sales and operations for Jurek Builders, was sentenced in Amherst Town Court on the misdemeanor count after being charged with barging into a changing room in the Tony Walker & Co. clothing store on Main Street and sexually touching a woman without her consent.

Town Justice Geoffrey Klein said he sentenced Jurek to probation based on his review of Jurek’s presentencing report. A two-year order of protection also was issued for the victim in the case, who was only recently acquainted with Jurek when the incident occurred, Klein said.
