Sentence in Sexual Assault Case Upheld
Former Griz running back Beau Donaldson was sentenced to 10 years
A panel of District Court judges has upheld the 10-year prison sentence given to a former University of Montana football player who pleaded guilty to raping a friend while she slept.

Former Griz running back Beau Donaldson was sentenced in January to 30 years in prison with 20 suspended. Defense attorney Milt Datsopoulos requested a sentence review in May.

The Missoulian reports the Montana Supreme Court's sentence review commission upheld the punishment imposed by District Judge Karen Townsend.

Donaldson is an inmate at the Montana State Prison in Deer Lodge. He could be eligible for parole after serving a quarter of the sentence.

Donaldson was charged in January 2012 with raping a friend in September 2010. The case came to light after the university ordered an outside investigation of sexual assaults involving students.
