TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to charges in a pregnant woman’s rape has been sentenced.

The News Tribune reports 32-year-old Marcus Anthony Stockinger was sentenced to almost 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in June.

The woman was three months pregnant at the time of the attack in 2014.

She said at Friday’s sentencing that she has difficulty sleeping and experiences feelings of anxiety before leaving her home.

She left the courtroom in tears.

Stockinger said he was sorry and that he acted out of “stupidity.”

The prosecutor and defense attorney recommended the same sentence.

Stockinger had previously served jail time related to an attempted rape.
