A former basketball player for Georgetown University was sentenced to spend 20 years in prison for strangling and trying to sexually assault his girlfriend's teenage daughter, the state's attorney for Prince George's County, Maryland, announced Friday.
Victor Page, 44, forced his way into the 17-year-old girl's bedroom, pushed her to the ground and tried to remove her clothing on Dec. 30, 2018, according to prosecutors. She managed to get away and made it to the parking garage of the apartment building where she, Page and her mother lived.
But surveillance video showed Page caught up to her and strangled her again for a longer period of time. Prosecutors said several people at the parking garage managed to get Page off of the teen.
Page pleaded guilty in June to first-degree assault and attempted fourth-degree sex offense as part of a plea agreement.
He was sentenced to 25 years in prison, with five years suspended, Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy announce Friday.
Page will also be on supervised probation for five years and must complete a mental health evaluation. In addition, he must register as a sex offender for 15 years.
