July 28, 2011 at 12:58 AM

ODESSA, Texas, July 28 (UPI) -- A man who posed as a teen basketball player pleaded guilty in a Texas court to sexual assault and tampering charges, officials say.

Guerdwich Montimer, 23, pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of sexual assault of a child and three counts of tampering with government records in Ector County court, the Odessa (Texas) American reported.

Montimer admitted lying about his name and age, posing as Jerry Joseph, a 16-year-old Haitian orphan, to have a high school "do over." In addition, he admitted having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

"Today, he had to go into court and acknowledge who he was," District Attorney Bobby Bland said. "And to me, that was very satisfactory. I enjoyed watching him have to acknowledge in a court of law that he was Guerdwich Montimer."

Montimer was sentenced to three years in prison for each charge.
