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.
