Prosecutors say former staff sergeant Ted Amparan wore his military fatigues when he attacked the victims — many of whom were sex workers — between 2007 and 2012. Some were as young as 16 years old and several never reported the attacks.
One woman who wasn’t a prostitute had simply become lost while trying to find a friend. Prosecutors say Amparan attacked her after offering her a ride but she fought back, scaled a 6-foot fence and crossed two lanes of freeway traffic to get away.
Amparan was convicted Monday of 10 felony counts. He faces 83 years to life in prison.
