Gordon Ennis was convicted of second degree rape in March. A former colleague told police the assault happened during a party. She said she passed out from being drunk, then woke up to Ennis assaulting her.

It took just two hours for the jury to come to their decision.

The sentencing hearing will be held in Spokane Superior Court Judge Maryann Moreno’s courtroom at 1:30 p.m.
