Man Gets Lengthy Prison Term in Rape Case
Forty-four-year-old Mark Gibson on Tuesday pleaded guilty to second-degree rape in the February assault, said he was sorry and asked the judge to sentence him to probation.
Judge Janine Kern cited Gibson's criminal history in giving him a lengthy prison term and ordering him to undergo sex offender treatment. The Rapid City Journal reports that Gibson's criminal history dates back to 1992 and includes convictions for domestic violence and voluntary manslaughter.
