Iowa man sentenced for rape


ELK POINT, SD (KWWL) --An Iowa man convicted of raping a woman at a mutual friend's 21st birthday party in South Dakota has been sentenced to serve 14 years in prison.

Thirty-eight-year-old Christopher Jones was convicted of two counts of third-degree rape in late March. Union County State's Attorney Jerry Miller says the Sioux City, Iowa, man was sentenced this week to 15 years in prison with eight years suspended on each count, with the sentences to be served consecutively.

Miller says Jones raped a 23-year-old woman twice on Oct. 19, 2008, at a Dakota Dunes residence. The victim told authorities she was drunk and passed out, but twice awoke to find Jones assaulting her.
