David Gunderson - Repeat Sex Offender gets LIFE plus 100 years

A repeat sex offender convicted of burglary and attempted rape has been sentenced to life plus 100 years in prison with no parole.

District Judge Gregory Todd says the lengthy sentence handed down yesterday stemmed from 53-year-old David Gunderson's record of committing sexually violent crimes. A psychologist also has concluded that Gunderson wouldn't benefit from sex offender treatment.

Gunderson was convicted in February of entering a 23-year-old woman's apartment last spring and attacking her as she slept.

His criminal record began when he was sent to a youth detention facility for molesting a child. He has had several convictions for sex crimes since.
