FARGO — A personal trainer will get no additional jail time after being sentenced in the last of two criminal sex cases where he recruited women for a fake medical study.
Cass County Judge Susan Bailey accepted a joint recommendation by the state and defense on Monday, Dec. 7, to give David Edward Sayler 30 days in jail. All but two days will be suspended if he completes almost a year of unsupervised probation. The 29-year-old also got credit for two days of time served.
Sayler was charged in June with misdemeanor charges of sexual assault and disorderly conduct in the Cass County case, as well as fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct in Clay County. Both criminal complaints alleged he recruited women for a medical study, sometimes saying it was for Parkinson’s disease.
Court documents described Sayler inappropriately touching the women, such as grinding against them. In Fargo, one woman alleged he masturbated in front of her at gyms, according to a criminal complaint.
In early October, a Clay County judge ordered Sayler to serve 120 days in jail. That’s why he didn’t appear Monday in Cass County District Court.
Bailey also agreed to lessen the sexual assault charge, allowing Sayler to plead guilty to two counts of disorderly conduct.
Sayler owns Summit Fitness. He said he plans to restart his career as a personal trainer once released from jail.
