MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A former University of Montana football player who pleaded guilty to rape in 2010 will be granted parole after he completes a pre-release program in Billings.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1XVY9IN ) that the Montana Board of Pardons and Parole decided Thursday to allow Beau Donaldson to be released on parole after he finishes his time at the Billings Pre-Release Center.

Last year, the board had denied Donaldson’s request for parole and instead allowed him to attend a boot camp and a 100-day aftercare program. He was then transferred to the pre-release center, where he has been since Dec. 9. Parole board analyst Julie Thomas says the program usually takes about six months.

Donaldson was sentenced in 2013 to 30 years in prison with 20 suspended for the rape of an acquaintance.
