A man in San Antonio, Texas was sentenced to 35 years in prison Monday for raping his son's prom date.

Ismael Cruz, 67, told the court he drank more than 60 beers the night of the rape, the San Antonio Express News reported.

The victim, who was 19 when the rape occurred in May 2012, fell asleep at her boyfriend's home on prom night. She woke up to a man on top of her. When she realized the man was Cruz -- and not her boyfriend -- she screamed and pushed him away.

Cruz's son reportedly beat him up after learning what happened.

According to the Associated Press, Cruz faced a minimum sentence of 25 years because of two past DUI convictions.
