Virginia man sentenced to prison for burglaries, assaults on Georgetown students

Virginia resident Todd M. Thomas was sentenced to 26 years in prison today, having been convicted of 11 crimes against Georgetown University students—burglaries, assaults, and sexual assaults—committed in 2007 and 2008 in off-campus Georgetown residences.

Thomas was charged and found guilty of the crimes, including five counts of first degree burglary, one count of attempted burglary, one count of fourth degree sexual abuse, and two counts of simple assault, in November 2009, ABC News reports. In one case, “Thomas sexually assaulted a student who was sleeping in bed while in another a student was awakened when Thomas massaged his ankles.”

It is not clear whether any of the crimes he was convicted for are crimes that have been attributed, by either the Metropolitan Police Department or the Department of Public Safety, to the so-called “Georgetown Cuddler.” Vox could not immediately reach MPD or DPS but we’ll let you know when we learn more.

  1. Interesting, but I wonder what his sourcing is? Because he says that the five assaults he was convicted of were assaults on male students, and from my memory almost all of the crimes that Georgetown news sources/ the City Paper ascribe to the “Cuddler” target females. He also says that another “Cuddler” is still at large. It sounds like he’s taking some liberties with the term.
