    A suspended Massachusetts State Police trooper convicted of raping his former girlfriend faces sentencing.

    The Middlesex district attorney says Robert Sundberg is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in Lowell Superior Court.

    The 48-year-old Framingham resident was convicted last week of multiple charges, including rape, strangulation, assault and battery and stalking.

    He was arrested after the victim, who is also a state police employee, reported she was attacked at his Boxborough home in April 2016. Prosecutors said the assault was the culmination of a long history of abuse by Sundberg directed at the victim.

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.
