ANCHORAGE - A man who was convicted of rape and other crimes was ordered to spend 44 years in prison.
Howard Hardrick Jr. was sentenced Friday by Superior Court Judge Eric Aarseth who found that the defendant qualified to be sentenced as a worst offender because of his extensive criminal history of assaults.
Hardrick was tried and convicted last year of kidnapping, sexual assault, assault and tampering with evidence. The judge also found aggravating factors when determining the sentence.
