A Tulsa County judge on Friday sentenced a serial rapist to life in prison with the possibility of parole after he pleaded guilty to twice raping a woman and raping two others.
Prosecutors said it was a rare series of particularly heinous sexual assaults by a stranger, who prosecutors believe were Hispanic women.
The judge told Brandon Biles Friday it was “the greatest amount of violence that can be exercised without taking someone’s life.”
His guilty plea to all charges means the three women do not have to testify in court and Bill is sentenced to life imprisonment.
Prosecutors said Brandon Biles, 19, raped or attempted to rape three women last fall.
They lived in an apartment complex near 41st and 129th East Avenues.
Prosecutors said the two women were sexually assaulted but were able to defend themselves against the bills. Biles recorded himself raping another woman twice on his cell phone.
Biles’ defense attorney told the judge it was unfortunate that the video was there and urged him to consider the case as if it were “any other rape case that doesn’t have the video.” Prosecutors played the video in court.
“Which underscores how horrific and appalling these crimes are,” Assistant District Attorney Kenneth Elmore said in an interview.
A woman’s victim testimony was read in court. In the statement, she said she wanted to use her voice and told the court she was always afraid now that something bad would happen to her. She said that she sleeps with the lights on and her parents are also constantly scared.
His statement was “I want him to pay for what he did to me.”
Investigators said they found notes in Bile’s apartment that read things like “cute Hispanic, lives alone” and they searched “rape” on Twitter.
Elmore applauds the bravery of all three women.
“Not only did he show courage in battle, but also courage to ask for help. Bravery for one of them for trying to save his daughter from a similar fate, but bravery to speak to the police, bravery to come forward, and testimony about a very personal, very gruesome, very graphic crime. It just shows tremendous power,” Elmore said.
Bill was convicted on Friday of 14 felonies, including two counts of first-degree rape.
The defense argued his guilty plea showed he accepted responsibility for his actions.
His sentences would run concurrently, making him eligible for parole in about 38 years.
