ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 37-year-old Anchorage man will spend 45 years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman who was drunk.

The Anchorage District Attorney’s office says in a release that Matthew Alexie was sentenced Monday for first-degree sexual assault.

He was convicted last September of raping an intoxicated woman in a wooded area off Third Avenue in downtown Anchorage in May 2011. He met the woman near a homeless shelter as she was returning to her tent.
