KALISPELL - A Whitefish man has pleaded no contest to raping a 17-year-old girl five years ago.

Twenty-seven-year-old Timothy House pleaded no contest Thursday in Flathead District Court.

House wasn't charged until March when he became a suspect in a different sexual assault case and a DNA sample was taken. That turned up a match from the 2007 DNA profile.

During testimony on Thursday House said he couldn't remember the assault. He also said he was molested between the ages of 5 and 12 but never told anyone before.

Flathead County prosecutors agreed to a sentence of seven years in prison with no parole in exchange for the no contest plea. House is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 20.
