BOISE, Idaho (AP) _

Patrick D. Ellinger, of Garden City, will be eligible for parole
after five years. He was sentenced Thursday by District Judge Darla
Williamson after pleading guilty earlier this fall to rape.

The Idaho Statesman reports that a felony sexual penetration
charge was dropped in a plea agreement.

Police arrested Ellinger in the early morning hours of Sept. 4
after the female victim called 911 to report she was raped by
Ellinger in the back seat of his cab.

Ellinger will have to register as a sex offender when he is
released from prison.
