NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches County judge sentenced a 24-year-old man to eight years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison for breaking into a woman's home and trying to rape her in February 2012.
John Wesley Norred, of Lufkin, appeared in Judge Edwin Klein's 420th Judicial District Court Friday. He pleaded guilty to a first-degree felony charge of burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit sexual assault at an earlier date.
According to the police report, a woman said she was sleeping at her residence on Main Street at 10 a.m. on Feb. 19 when an unknown person entered the room and tried to have sex with her. He then left the home.
The report was originally listed as a sexual assault, but police instead filed a charge of burglary of a habitation with intent for sex, a first-degree felony, on John Wesley Norred, 21, of Nacogdoches.
Norred turned himself in on the burglary charge on Feb. 23, 2012.
Sgt. Greg Sowell said any further information on the case could possibly identify the victim, and he is prohibited by law from releasing it.
