RALEIGH, N.C. — A man accused of raping and kidnapping his former girlfriend at gunpoint is free.

Bruce Parrish recently pleaded guilty to a lesser charge after the victim told police the sex was consensual.

Parrish was sentenced to 36 months' probation and will not receive any jail time.

Raleigh police say Parrish forced his way into his ex-girlfriend's home in July and kidnapped her. Investigators said the two were later found at a Raleigh motel.

Parrish, who is distinguished by a series of dots tattooed on his face, has faced numerous charges in the past, including breaking-and-entering and possession of stolen goods.
