NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A Colorado man accused of sexually assaulting students on the University of Oklahoma campus over a 15-year period has been sentenced to 177 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple charges.

Robert Howard Bruce pleaded guilty Tuesday to five counts of first-degree rape, 10 counts of first-degree burglary, two counts of sexual battery and one count of forcible sodomy. Prosecutors accused him of attacking people on the OU campus between 1985 and 2006.

Bruce wasn't arrested until last year after his DNA was entered into a national database. He's also been sentenced to 156 years in prison after pleading guilty to nine rape charges in New Mexico.

The Norman Transcript reports that several victims attended Bruce's sentencing but declined to make a statement.
