He has been accused of six other rapes in the Arlington area. Thus, he has been named the Arlington Serial Rapist. Although he was sentenced to 30 years and faces a similar sentence on the recent conviction, Jacksonville prosecutors may seek additional convictions and sentences to ensure that the convictions are not overturned on appeal.
