BEND, OR -- A Bend man has pleaded guilty to a number of domestic violence-related charges stemming from crimes committed between January and April of last year. Brett Vanscoy changed his plea two weeks into his trial.
Bend Police Lt. Nick Parker told KBND News shortly after Vanscoy's arrest, "Officers investigating the case determined that Brett Vanscoy had held the female victim in a residence against her will, at one point. Over that time he had assaulted her, ad strangled her, had forcibly raped her, and then had committed additional sexual-related offenses."
The Deschutes County District Attorney says investigators disproved Vanscoy's claims that he suffered from PTSD caused by his deployment as a sniper. Prosecutors discovered he was never a sniper, nor was he deployed.
Vanscoy was sentenced to 100 months in prison, must register as a sex offender and complete mental health treatment.
