BOZEMAN, Mont. — One of two men accused of raping a woman who was intoxicated and unconscious in Montana last fall has pleaded guilty to felony sexual intercourse without consent.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that Heriberto Bobadilla, who is a citizen of Mexico, pleaded guilty before Judge John Brown in Gallatin County District Court on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Bobadilla was arrested in August along with 35-year-old Alex Romero after a woman reported being sexually assaulted by the two at a residence in Big Sky.

Romero is also facing a felony sexual intercourse without consent charge. He has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go to trial Aug. 13.

Bobadilla remains in the Gallatin County jail pending his sentencing.
