Cedar Rapids man sentenced for attacking his wife

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A Cedar Rapids man was sentenced to 30 years in prison for beating and raping his wife.

32-year old Shawn Kruse attacked his wife last June.

While trying to escape police, Kruse crashed his car and is now paralyzed from the waist down.

The judge says he must serve at least 17 1/2 years of the sentence before he's eligible for parole.

Kruse entered an Alford plea in December, saying he didn't remember everything that happened.
