Rapist Sentenced to 28 Years for 11 Rapes

A Sebastopol, California man convicted of 11 counts of rape and sexual assault against five women was sentenced Monday (4-29) to 28 years in prison, the maximum sentence possible. Lonnie Victory drugged the women, tied them up, and videotaped the rapes. The videos were shown in court and showed the drugged victims choking and vomiting, some while hooded and gagged. Victorys ex-girlfriend, who turned Victory in to the authorities after discovering the tapes, agreed with the Deputy District Attorney that the sentence was appropriate.
