Penticton man guilty of violent rape, gets 3 years jail

Three years for violent rape

A Penticton man has been sentenced to three years in prison for violently raping a Kamloops woman in July 2017. 

Richard Syver Skoyen was sentenced Monday in Kamloops, the BC Prosecution Service confirms. Along with his time in jail, he received a 10 year prohibition from possession of firearms.

Kamloops This Week reports that Skoyen and his victim, whose name is protected under a publication ban, connected in 2017 when they planned to meet in Merritt for an erotic photo shoot. 

But the victim said things immediately escalated beyond consent.

A psychologist who assessed Skoyen called him a sexual sadist, Kamloops This Week further reports.
