(KXAN) - Jonathan Porterie, the 22-year-old former Texas State football player, was sentenced to 20 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of three counts of burglary with attempt to commit sexual assault and one count of improper photography.

Porterie had been arrested and charged twice in September 2012 for entering unlocked apartments of young female residents.

On Sept. 7, 2012 he was charged with criminal trespass of habitation, a Class A misdemeanor, after a woman discovered Porterie in her room standing near her bed. She called 911 and he was arrested at his apartment in the same building, Dunn said.

Porterie was already under investigation for an earlier incident reported on Sept. 4, 2012 where he was accused of illegally entering the apartment of a resident of the complex and making physical contact with the victim.

He left the apartment when the woman and roommate confronted him.

Porterie was arrested in November 2012 after a three-day search in San Antonio by San Marcos Police working with U.S. Marshals in connection with the sexual assault of a woman at the University Club Apartments. The victim identified Porterie by his first name and he is known by many of the residents since he lived in the complex prior to his arrests in September of that year.

Texas State Assistant Athletics Director Rick Poulter confirmed Porterie was a walk-on player with the Bobcats' football team in the spring of 2011. The wide receiver was released before the regular season and never played for the team during the regular season.
