Man Sentenced to Prison for Rape

Posted: Updated:
ANACONDA -

A 61-year-old Anaconda man is sentenced to 15 years in the Montana State Prison with 10 years suspended for raping a family friend in September of 2010.

A jury found Barney Morse guilty of sexual intercourse without consent for giving a massage to the victim, who was under the influence of a strong prescribed pain medication.

Originally prosecutors requested a 20 year sentence.

During the sentencing, the judge said it was a difficult decision as Morse had no previous criminal history.

Morse is also ordered to complete a sexual offender treatment program.
