Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Superior Court Judge Kevin M. Saxby sentenced 40-year-old Lloyd Allen Jenkins was sentenced to 35 years of active incarceration for the 2017 rape and assault of his girlfriend.
Jenkins faced a sentencing range of 30 to 40 years with a maximum of 99 years.
Following a two-week trial in June of 2021, an Anchorage jury found Jenkins guilty of sexual assault in the first degree, and assault in the second, third, and fourth degrees.
The evidence at trial established that in 2017 Jenkins assaulted his girlfriend with a golf club, strangled her, and then sexually assaulted her.
The jury also heard evidence of a previous domestic violence assault against another victim by Jenkins.

In sentencing Jenkins, Judge Saxby found that this sexual assault was particularly egregious and deserved an aggravated sentence.
