An Arizona man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the 2003 rape of a Missoula woman.
District Judge Dusty Deschamps sentenced 46-year-old Kenneth Edward Whatley on Wednesday to 30 years in prison with 20 suspended. He ordered Whatley to register as a Level II sex offender.
Prosecutors said Whatley broke into the woman's home in December 2003 and raped her. Court records say DNA on a baseball cap the suspect left behind was matched to Whatley in 2010. Whatley had a criminal record in Arizona.
He pleaded guilty in April to sexual intercourse without consent.
