Robert Bruce, the man previously sentenced for trying to kill a Pueblo cop, was sentenced for attempted sexual assault and burglary.

Bruce, also known as "Ether Man," received the maximum six-year sentence for attempted sexual assault and 24 years, also the maximum, for burglary.

In Bruce’s previous conviction and sentencing, he was given 48 years for the first count of attempted murder, 16 years for the second count of attempted murder, and five years for possession of an explosive/incendiary device. He was convicted of rigging a propane tank to leak gas into a Pueblo officer’s home.

He also has outstanding charges in other states for sexual assault. He is accused of grabbing women and using ether to subdue them.

The DNA found on the propane tank is what led them to link Bruce to those other alleged rapes.

    Nobody brought up his daughter or family. Re-read the comment. The commentator is talking about our families and daughters, not his.

    Even though his sentences are concurrent, he will most likely never see a free day in the rest of his life. There are so many charges in other states, that it will take years alone to get through the trials. Thank goodness that this monster is off the streets and that all these women will be getting their justice. I hope he rots in a tiny cell regretting all the horrible things hes done in his life.

    Please do not bring up his daughter or mention their family. They are my cousins and they do not need to be brought up in any way any more. Thank you.

    He's not worthy of the air he breathes, hope he has a fatal accident in prison

    Hear he's serving concurrent terms because he's "cooperating" with authorities...really? He tried to kill a cop and his family and sexually assaulted multiple women in multiple states. That he is "cooperating" now does NOT warrant concurrent sentencing. You really think he'll wise up in prison and change his life? Wanna bet YOUR family or daughter on that chance?
