Wimberly entered a guilty plea before Superior Court Judge David Smith to a seven-count indictment alleging he entered the woman's Mac Johnson Road home around 3 a.m. on March 1, 2009, lying down next to her in bed and attempting to have sex with her.
The investigative report, part of the court record, indicates the alleged victim told Wimberly she had to go to the bathroom, and while in the restroom heard the man walking around inside the bedroom. She made her escape when she thought he had left, grabbing her cell phone and a butcher knife on her way out of the home, also yelling that she had called the police.
The alleged victim said she called 911 after locking herself in her car, and waited for authorities in the car, which was blocked by a gold Mercedes, driven by Wimberly, court records state.
She saw Wimberly when Bartow County Sheriff's Office deputies removed him from the home, where he had apparently hidden, according to the report. The alleged victim reported she did not know and had never seen Wimberly.
In a subsequent interview with investigators, Wimberly said he had met another woman who lived on Alisha Circle in the alleged victim's driveway, but that woman left on foot and did not return, the report states. He said he thought the Alisha Circle woman had entered the alleged victim's home, and went inside looking for her.
The investigator wrote in the report that Wimberly first denied getting in bed with the alleged victim, but changed his story, admitting he had tried to have sex with her.
Authorities also contacted the Alisha Circle woman, who said she had used Wimberly's cell phone to call her ride several weeks prior. She reported Wimberly "constantly called her on her phone and tried to get her to meet him," the report states. She added that she had demanded he stop calling her.
Wimberly had been charged with attempted rape, two counts of burglary, entering a motor vehicle to commit theft, two counts of sexual battery and possession of marijuana less than one ounce.
Arrest warrants indicate Wimberly also had broken into the alleged victim's car and had a pill bottle containing marijuana in his car.
He was sentenced to 30 years, 15 of which he was ordered to serve in prison. Wimberly, formerly of Floral Drive, Cartersville, will serve the balance on probation and is required to register as a sex offender.
Guilty pleas were entered in a number of cases, including:
* Kenneth Rogers pleaded guilty to robbery before Superior Court Judge Shepherd Howell. Rogers -- along with two co-defendants, Trevus Jamaahl Baugh and Vanity Lorraine Printup -- had been accused of robbing a man by force, stealing his keys, wallet and cell phone in January. He was sentenced to serve four years of a 20-year sentence in prison, and pay a $1,000 fine and $145 in restitution.
The victim was injured, being struck with fists and kicked, during the alleged robbery, the arrest warrant states. The cases of Rogers' co-defendants have not been resolved.
* Jason Starr Womack, 37, pleaded guilty before Smith to trafficking methamphetamine, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, two counts of hindering an officer and loitering or prowling. He was sentenced to 20 years, 10 of which he is set to serve in prison, and ordered to pay a $200,000 fine.
