A Town of Lockport man pleaded guilty Monday to raping a woman who was unconscious from drinking and using drugs.
Christopher A. Penwright, 23, of Gardenwood Drive, said the incident happened at a party in his home Oct. 15. He said the woman was too intoxicated to consent to sex.
Penwright, who pleaded guilty to third-degree rape before his case could be presented to a grand jury, faces up to four years in prison when sentenced Oct. 16 by Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III.
He remains free on $10,000 bail in the meantime.
