(Tulsa-AP) -- A Glenpool man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison and $30,000 in fines in the first Tulsa County trial involving the date rape drug Rohypnol.

A jury in March gave Mark Lynn Claybrook a five-year term on each of two counts of sexual battery and a 15-year sentence for rape by instrumentation. Jurors also imposed three $10,000 fines.

District Judge Jesse Harris yesterday ordered all sentences to run consecutively. The defense had asked that Claybrook be put on probation or his sentences run concurrently.

Prosecutors had accused Claybrook of taking sexual advantage of a woman in his Tulsa recording studio in 1998 after giving her the rug. Claybrook denied the allegations.
