If convicted he faces a minimum of five years in prison, five years supervised probation and registration as a sex offender and a maximum sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole.According to Griggs County Sheriff Bob Hook, Chapps had no ties to the Cooperstown community and rarely left the West Side Motel where he was staying with his aunt and uncle. Once the complaint was made, the case was immediately turned over to Barnes County.Valley City, NDBy Bonnie Jo ConleyArkansas Man Accused of Rape in BCValley City Times
