District Judge David Wall on Tuesday sentenced the man convicted of being the Flamingo Road rapist to 130 years in prison.
In September, a jury found 42-year-old Dushon Green guilty of 19 counts of sexual assault and lewdness with a minor. Two of his seven victims were underage when they were sexually assaulted in the late 1990s.
Six of the victims testified at the sentencing Tuesday about how more than a decade later they are still struggling to cope with what happened to them, prosecutor Tom Carroll said.
Most of the victims "no longer sleep well through the night. Some of them said they haven’t had a full night’s sleep since this happened," Carroll said.
The Flamingo Road rapist attacked his victims while they were sleeping in neighborhoods along Flamingo Road on the east side of Interstate 15.
His DNA was found at each of the seven separate crime scenes and eventually matched to Green in 2004, long after the last-known attack by the Flamingo Road rapist, which occurred in March 1998, authorities said.
Wall told the court the sentence was intended to keep Green in prison for the rest of his life, Carroll said.
Green’s lawyer, Susan Burke, did not return phone calls from the Review-Journal on Tuesday, but has said Green will appeal the case.
Burke, who emphasized that none of the victims got a good look at their attacker, had argued during the trial that the DNA samples were old and that the results matching them to Green were subject to error.
Green, who has said all along that he was not the rapist, complained during the sentencing proceeding that he was a victim of illegal tactics by the police.
