Man Sentenced to 100 Years for Missoula Assaults

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A Missoula judge has sentenced a man to 100 years in prison for raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in late 2010.

District Judge John Larson called Joshua Jeremy Peltier’s actions the most extreme that he could envision under the statute without the victims being killed.

The sentence handed down on Thursday does not include the possibility of parole.

A jury in January convicted Peltier of rape, sexual assault, attempted kidnapping, tampering with evidence and two counts of robbery.

Prosecutors say Peltier knocked a 26-year-old woman from her bicycle and punched her repeatedly before shoving his hand down her pants and stealing her purse.

In the second attack, he was accused of raping a 29-year-old woman who was walking her dog.
