After the window-peeping incident, he was sentenced to 64 years for trying to kill a Pueblo police officer by blowing up the police officer’s home. The charges stemmed from trying to keep the officer from submitting Bruce’s DNA to the national reporting system.
Police said once Bruce’s DNA was entered into the national system, “he started popping up all over.”
After his 64-year sentence, Bruce was sentenced to six years for sexual assault and 24 years for burglary in Colorado. He also was sentenced last year to 156 years in New Mexico after pleading guilty to nine rape charges.
“This fellow was essentially a pro at burglary and committing rapes,” Easley said, “not just in Oklahoma but in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado.”
