Eldridge sentenced in rape case


by Sarah Squires

Steven Michael Eldridge, 19, of Winona, was sentenced to nine months in jail and 15 years probation for his admitted role in the 2004 rape of a 16-year-old girl.

Eldridge is one of four people charged in connection with the crime, in which the victim needed surgery to stop bleeding after being raped while unconscious with a beer can, according to court documents.

Eldridge pleaded guilty to one charge of felony sexual assault. If he violates the terms of his 15-year probation sentence, he could face up to four years in prison. He must also pay $10,000 in restitution, register as a sex offender, complete a treatment program, not drink alcohol or take drugs and have no contact with the victim.
