It was Veteran's Day, Nov. 11. 2009, when Regina Walker woke up in her apartment at the Sherwood Plaza in Council Bluffs, Iowa to see a menacing man standing over her, waving a handgun in her face.
"You will cooperate," he snarled, his face twisted into a sneer. The tall man ordered the terrified young woman to disrobe.
Unbeknownst to retired Army LTC Robert Butts, Regina's younger sister, Jennifer, was in the next bedroom. She heard the commotion. Jennifer crept down the hall, saw Regina was in trouble and tiptoed into the bathroom, locked the door and called police on her cell phone.
Meanwhile, Regina, unaware help was on the way, made a desperate move. She grabbed for Butt's gun and was fighting him for it when the cops quickly arrived.
BUTTS "PTSD" EXCUSE DOESN'T FLY WITH THE JUDGE
"I can't remember a thing. I must have blacked out," claimed an unconvincing, guilty-as-hell Butts. Later, in court, a skeptical judge wasn't buying the 44 year-old former officer's lame excuse that "PTSD" caused him to commit such a crime.
Butts was convicted earlier this month of 2nd degree kidnapping, 1st dgree burglary, assault with intent to commit sexual assault, carrying a weapon, and assorted other charges.
Butts faces up to 66 years in prison. Judge James Heckerman has scheduled the ex-colonel's sentencing for December 13.
