Fairbanks rapist gets almost 40 years

Posted: Wednesday, April 21, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A Fairbanks man convicted of sexually assaulting three women has been sentenced to 38 years in prison.

A jury determined that 22-year-old Gareth Demoski raped a relative and a woman he met while walking along College Road. He was also found guilty of breaking into a third woman's home and sexually assaulting her as she slept next to her fiance.

The sentence issued by Superior Court Judge Randy Olsen was five years longer than recommended by the state. He described Demoski as a dangerous offender who needs to be locked up for a long time.

Given a chance to speak at Monday's sentencing Demoski said, "I'm sorry if I hurt anyone, including my family."
