A 63-year-old Wainwright man will be spending the next 25-years in prison following his sentencing Monday in Muskogee County District Court.

Jerry Lee McNatt was found guilty in mid-July of two counts of first degree rape and one count of forcible sodomy following a trial.

McNatt was charged with raping an 18-year-old woman witnesses called "mentally retarded and autistic." McNatt admitted having a sexual relationship with the woman, but claimed the sex was consensual.

The jury recommended 25-year sentences for each of the two rape counts and a 20-year sentence for the forcible sodomy count.

The judge ordered the three sentences recommended by the jury to be served concurrently.
