Man gets 18 years in rape of woman he met on Craigslist

PORT ANGELES, Wash. – A 30-year-old man has been sentenced to over 18 years in prison for raping and assaulting a woman he met on Craigslist.

The Peninsula Daily News reported 30-year-old Nikolas Clark was sentenced this week in Clallam County Superior Court.

Port Angeles police said Clark repeatedly beat and raped a 24-year-old woman late last year after the woman refused to commit to an exclusive dating relationship with him.

Clark entered an Alford plea May 3 to rape with forcible compulsion, rape, assault with strangulation, assault and assault in violation of a no-contact order. All five charges carried domestic violence enhancements.

Clark apologized for his actions in court.
