Penn State ex-wrestler sentenced for sex assault

Friday, August 31, 2012

A former Penn State wrestler will spend a year in jail for sexually assaulting a sleeping woman.

Twenty-three-year-old Andrew Long was sentenced Thursday in Centre County. He had pleaded guilty to aggravated indecent assault.

The Centre Daily Times reports Long apologized in court to the victim. She had been sleeping after moving her son into an apartment in State College in August 2011.

Long had been a key member of Penn State's championship wrestling team earlier that year. He finished third at 133 pounds.

Defense attorney Tony DeBoef says Long has been in a treatment program in his home state of Iowa.
