BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Montana man is facing 110 years in prison after being found guilty of raping and assaulting a pregnant woman.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2aAvVkB ) that 35-year-old Jessy Lee Williams was sentenced to Montana State Prison Tuesday on charges of sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated burglary and aggravated assault.

He won’t be eligible to seek parole until he is at least 60 years old.

The victim testified during Williams’ trial last November that he broke into her home in March 2014 and she woke up with his hands around her neck. Williams has maintained that the sex was consensual.

Yellowstone County District Judge Gregory Todd said it was hard to find any mitigating factors in Williams’ case.

Williams apologized to his victim during the sentencing.
