DANBURY, Conn. — A former National Guardsman was sentenced to more than a year in prison after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old he met at the Danbury Fair Mall last year, according to the Connecticut Post.

A judge in Bridgeport sentenced 21-year-old Christopher Wright to 17 months in prison followed by three years of probation for two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and one count of reckless endangerment, the Connecticut Post reported. The charges stem from an incident in October when police were dispatched to Danbury Hospital on reports of a sexual assault that had taken place in Bridgeport, according to the Connecticut Post.

The girl told police that Wright had met her at the Danbury Fair Mall and taken her back to his home in Bridgeport, the Connecticut Post reported. Once there, he sexually assaulted her, and videotaped the encounter, police told the Connecticut Post.
