An Evanston man who sexually assaulted a Northwestern student in 2007 was sentenced to 30 years in prison last week.

The Daily Northwestern reports that Darryl Preston, 26, pled guilty to two felony counts of sexual assault. Prosecutors say DNA evidence linked Preston to the May 8, 2007 attack.

Police say Preston approached the 22-year-old victim from behind at about 11:25 p.m., forced her into her apartment on the 1200 block of Simpson Street and sexually assaulted her in her bedroom, after threatening to kill her if she screamed.
