William N. Mukendi, 32, was sentenced Tuesday to two to 15 years in prison.
An Ada County jury found Mukendi guilty in March of a charge of rape where the victim resists but the resistance is overcome by force or violence.
Ada County District Judge Richard Greenwood fined Mukendi $546 and signed an order prohibiting him from contacting the victim in the case.
Mukendi was arrested at his home in November 2014, following a four-month investigation by Boise police.
Police said Mukendi raped a 21-year-old acquaintance in July 2014. Mukendi, also known as William Mutombo, pinned the woman down after she resisted his attempts, police said.
