Hearne Man Sentenced in A&M Dorm Assault Case

By  | 

A Hearne man who pled guilty to breaking into a Texas A&M dorm room and threatening to rape a student at gunpoint has been sentenced to 17 years in prison.

Christopher Montelongo, 41, was sentenced Monday to 17 years for two counts of burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit a sexual offense and one count of burglary of a habitation.
The sentences will run concurrently.

Montelongo was arrested in February 2005 after a Texas A&M University freshman told police he broke into her dorm room and held a gun to her head while demanding sex.

The 19-year-old Aggie told police she managed to break free and was not injured.

He was also sentenced to 180 days in prison for possession of marijuana.
