Rape victim upset with sentencing of ex-husband

Wise will not serve any time in jail

INDIANAPOLIS - A man who was found guilty of raping and drugging his then-wife while she was unconscious will not serve any time in jail.

The ex-wife of David Wise said she is angry. She said it was hard to come forward, but she wants to be a voice for other victims.

Although a jury convicted Wise of one count of rape and five counts of criminal deviate conduct, a judge sentenced him Friday to eight years of home detention instead of time in jail.

Mandy Boardman said she was drugged by Wise hundreds of times over a three-year period while they were married. She said she was raped while Wise videotaped it and she thinks he belongs in prison.

"Never in a million years did I think that my rapist would be walking out the door that I'm walking out of. He should have been walking out one in orange while I went home and I watched TV and I lived my life. He gets to go home and do the same thing," Boardman said.

Wise and Boardman were married for 12 years. She said she does not remember any of the sexual encounters she has seen in videos.

Wise’s attorney said that since Wise intends to pursue his right to appeal, it would be inappropriate to comment at this time.
