41-year-old Ted Amparan is expected to be sentenced today for raping and sexually assaulting six women over a five year period. The maximum punishment he could receive is life in prison.
Prosecutors say the Camp Pendleton Marine wore his military uniform when he committed most of the attacks, between 2007 and 2011, along El Cajon Blvd. in San Diego.
Most of the victims were working as prostitutes. Amparan would drive the women to a parking lot along Camino del Rio South in Mission Valley, “where freeway noise made it difficult for anyone to hear their screams,” according to ABC 10.
The former staff sergeant was convicted in May of 2015 for kidnapping these women and assaulting them – some of them reportedly as young as 16 years old. One of the six women was not a sex worker, and was coming back from a party when Amparan targeted her and took her to the Mission Valley spot.
