A Bend judge has sentenced former COCC instructor Thomas Bray to 25 years in prison for rape.

 

The prosecution was requesting for 33 years and the defense wanted ten years.

 

Originally, the prosecution was asking for a minimum sentence of 25 years, as part of Measure 73, which states repeat felony sex crime offenders  will get a minimum of 25 years.

 

But Judge Stephen Tiktin ruled Measure 73 does not apply because the attack was one continuous incident.

 

District Attorney Patrick Flaherty reacts to the verdict:  “Well, I believe it was a good outcome. We’d requested 400 months. That is, we were asking the Court to run all 4 of the sex offenses consecutive; they each carried a 100 month mandatory minimum. But we certainly appreciate the great analysis that Judge Tiktin engaged in, in explaining his sentence. And so, we’re happy.”

 

Bray was convicted of six rape and assault charges involving a woman he met on match.com last year.
