A former University of Montana Grizzly football player who was sentenced to 10 years in the Montana State prison for rape will be paroled.

The Montana Board of Pardons and Parole reports that Beau Donaldson is now serving time at a Billings Pre-Release Center.

Prior to his release to Billings, Donaldson was serving 100 days at a boot camp at the Treasure State Correctional Training Center in Deer Lodge.

The Board denied Donaldson's parole in May of 2015, but recommended Donaldson for boot camp.

Judge Karen Townsend sentenced Donaldson in January of 2013 to 30 years in prison, with 20 years suspended, after he pleaded guilty to raping a friend at his home. 

Julie Thomas, senior Parole Analyst with the Board of Pardons and Parole, says the board granted Beau Donaldson's parole on April 21.

But Thomas says Donaldson has to complete a successful pre-release program in Billings before the board will sign off on Donaldson's parole.

She said Donaldson will be at the Billings Pre-Release center for six months.
