OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man accused of raping multiple women over several years has been sentenced to up to 140 years in prison.
The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1w2bgsO ) a judge sentenced Anthony Vaughn on Wednesday to 110 to 140 years in prison. The 42-year-old won't be eligible for parole until he's at least 96 years old.
In April, Vaughn made a last-minute deal with prosecutors and pleaded no contest to two counts of first-degree sexual assault and other charges. Several charges were dropped in return.
Vaughn was accused of a series of rapes between 1999 and 2009. A DNA sample taken in 2011 after a burglary conviction linked him to the crimes.
One victim told the newspaper she was relieved by the sentence.
