45 Year Sentence for Carjacking and Sex Assault

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A Dallas man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for forcing a woman he carjacked and held at gunpoint to perform a sex act on him.

Prosecutors in Tarrant County on Thursday announced the penalty for 27-year-old Ousmane Wangare. A Fort Worth jury in December convicted Wangare of aggravated sexual assault in the 2012 incident that began at an Arlington car wash.

Authorities say three men approached the Navy veteran and her friend, an airman stationed in Shreveport, La., and tried to rob the pair before forcing the couple to leave with them.

Wangare, who was sentenced Wednesday by a judge, must serve at least half of the 45-year term before being eligible for parole.

A second suspect faces charges. The third suspect remains at large.
