Military Man Sentenced For Sexual Assault

An Air National Guardsman learned his sentence Friday after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a 15 year old. Benjamin Zollinger, 19, is sentenced to seven years community supervision.

The reported incident happened February 2011. The teen told Wichita Falls police she was spending the night with some friends at a hotel in the 400 block of Broad. The victim said Zollinger approached them while they were in the hotel hot tub.

The teen later went to lay down because she wasn't feeling well. She said Zollinger followed her, laid next to her and sexually assaulted her.

Police said Zollinger originally admitted to having come into contact with the teen, but denied sexually assaulting her. DNA samples were taken from the scene and were consistent with a mixture of DNA from Zollinger and the victim.

Zollinger was a member of the Tennessee Air National Guard and was at Sheppard Air Force Base for training at the time of the incident.
