DALLAS (KRLD) - A Denton man has been sentenced to three life prison terms for breaking into apartments near the University of North Texas campus and sexually assaulting women.

33-year-old Earl Thompson all but admitted to attacking the women when he was interviewed by our partner station NBC 5.

Under Texas law, the sentences run concurrently.

Thompson was convicted of charges of burglary with intent to commit other crimes. Those charges carried a heftier penalty than a sexual assault charge.
