A 39-year-old Davenport man who police said held a female down on a bed and had sex with her has pleaded guilty.

Tony Montegna, of 3506 Pacific Ave., pleaded guilty Friday to a lesser charge of assault with intent to commit sexual abuse with no injury, an aggravated misdemeanor, ahead of going to trial Monday on one count of forcible rape.

Montegna was arrested Aug. 24. As of Monday, he had been in the Scott County Jail for 101 days on a $10,000 cash-only bond.

Montegna was at a residence on West 17th Street about 6 a.m. Oct. 16, 2011, when he forcibly held a female victim down on a bed and had sex with her against her will, according to his arrest affidavit.

His sentencing is set for 2:30 p.m. Jan. 3.

Meanwhile, Montegna was charged Nov. 16 with third-degree sex abuse related to an incident that occurred eight months after the rape he pleaded guilty to. The victims in the two cases are different, court records state.

Scott County District Judge Paul Macek last week denied a motion by prosecutors to combine the two cases into one, and Montegna awaits trial on the third-degree sex abuse charge, court records state.

His record in Scott County includes convictions for assault in 1996 and domestic abuse in 2004.
