A Fruita man is behind bars on a first degree sex assault charge after DNA evidence matches him to the crime 10 months later.

According to an arrest affidavit, 20–year-old Tristan James Brady Burford was arrested in connection to a sex assault that happened Dec. 6, 2008.

The DNA match came back from CBI Sept. 22 of this year and he was arrested Thursday.

The victim says Burford assaulted her in the back seat of a car and again in a garage after leaving a party with him where there had been drinking.
