A man convicted of beating and raping a Beatrice woman has been sentenced to up to 41 years in prison.

The Nebraska Attorney General's office says 30-year-old Joseph Buttercase was sentenced Tuesday to 20 to 30 years for first-degree sexual assault, four to five years for false imprisonment, 20 months to five years for strangulation and one year for third-degree domestic assault.

The sentences are to run one after the other.

Prosecutors say Buttercase brutally beat the 29-year-old woman over a three-hour period in July 2011 after they argued at his home. Buttercase was convicted in August.
