A Spokane man who posed as a police officer and raped a 19-year-old woman has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Christopher M. Clough, 30, has been in jail since his arrest last September after a woman told police he sexually assaulted her in Corbin Park after stopping her as she walked on Monroe Street about 1 a.m.
The woman was carrying a cup of alcohol; she told police Clough threatened to arrest her for underage drinking if she didn't have sex with him.
Clough pleaded guilty this week to third-degree rape, unlawful imprisonment and first-degree criminal impersonation.
He was sentenced to 60 months in prison with credit for 264 days served. He's also required to pay $816 restitution.
