STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) — A 33-year-old man has been sentenced to five years in prison for breaking into students’ houses near the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and sexually assaulting one student.
The Stevens Point Journal reports Nelly Makalin was also sentenced to five years of extended supervision on Tuesday. He had pleaded guilty in June to one count of third-degree sexual assault and two counts of criminal trespass.
A criminal complaint says a woman called police Oct. 31 after she awoke to man in her room and was assaulted. Police also investigated two other incidents in which an unknown man went inside residences, but had left after being confronted.
Makalin said in court that he hoped victims “will find a place in their hearts” to forgive him.
