PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Clackamas County man has been found guilty expect for insanity on charges that he beat and raped a woman he held captive in his apartment in 2014.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1Uu8FYG ) that 59-year-old Brady Lee Hess was sentenced Tuesday to up to 40 years of supervision by the Psychiatric Security Review Board. He was committed to the Oregon State Hospital to continue treatment for bipolar disorder.

Hess had pleaded guilty except for insanity to charges of kidnapping, rape, unlawful sexual penetration and sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say Hess attacked the woman at his apartment and threatened to kill her if she left. The victim was able to escape days later.

A doctor determined in March that Hess’ actions had occurred while he was in a “significantly comprised mental state.”
