(Seattle, Wash.) A Seattle woman charged with entering a man’s apartment and raping him as he slept pleaded guilty on last week. Chantae Gilman agreed to a sentence of nine months in prison and must register as a sex offender, according to court records.

Gilman, 28 pleaded guilty to reduced felony charges of attempted rape and assault as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. Police initially charged her with rape.

Gilman is scheduled to be sentenced on June 19. As part of the plea arrangement, Gilman must serve two years probation after her release from jail and she is prohibited from making contact with the 32-year-old victim.

Gilman admitted to the June 2013 attack in the victim’s Seattle apartment. She acknowledged to making a “substantial step to engage in sexual intercourse with the victim and without his consent to the sexual contact as he slept and was unable to consent.”

According to a Seattle Police Department report, the victim, identified by his initials “M.O.” in court documents, told police officers he did not know Gilman. But did say she was an acquaintance of a neighbor who lived in his apartment duplex.

The victim told investigators that he went to a birthday party for the neighbor whom both he and Gilman knew. He left the party, went home and fell into a deep sleep after having a long day,” Detective Roger Ishimitsu reported.

The man awoke around 2 AM to discover the 240-pound Gilman on top of him, with his hands pinned over his head and his erect penis inside the woman.

“M.O,” said Gilman ignored his demands to get off him. However, he managed to free his way out from underneath” her.

According to Ishimitsu, when investigators initially questioned Gilman, she first denied being in the victim’s home or having sex with him. Gilman told detectives she “has a mental illness and suffers from Bipolar Disorder and Psychosis.”

Prosecutors will also recommend to the court prohibit Gilman from using or possessing any alcohol or “non-prescribed drugs.”

Gilman’s criminal history dates back 15 years. She has convictions for attempted robbery, attempted forgery, theft, and possession of a stolen vehicle. At the time of her arrest last September for the sexual assault, Gilman was pregnant with her third child.
