A Van Buren man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping his wife, according to the Crawford County prosecuting attorney's office.

German Vasquez, 49, was accused of forcibly having sex with his wife May 7, 2016, two months after she filed for divorce against him, according to Circuit Court records. The couple had separated in February 2016. The divorce decree was issued May 9, 2017.

Vasquez was convicted after a two-day trial this week before Crawford County Circuit Judge Gary Cottrell, who sentenced Vasquez based on the jury's sentencing recommendation.

Rape is a Class Y felony with a penalty range of 10 to 40 years or life in prison.

Most People that kill other people get less time than this. It may be the Law, and this Law is one that needs to be changed. There should be Some Punishment but this Punishment does not fit the Crime, SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES. There are no winners here, especially if there are some Children INVOLVED,

He got the minimum for the crime he was convicted of. He's lucky he didn't get life.
