A La Crosse County Circuit Court judge has sentenced an 18-year-old Bangor man to five years in prison.
Theodore Muellenberg had been accused of breaking into his friend's house, trying to sexually assault her -- then claiming to be a victim. Muellenberg was wearing a ski mask during the break-in. He strangled the friend until she passed out, then went home and pretended to be the victim of an attack himself. The woman says she now suffers from panic attacks, is afraid to be alone and is terrified of the dark.
