Roy Waller, also known as the ‘NorCal Rapist,’ was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in Sacramento, California.
On Friday, Waller was given the maximum sentence of 897 years in state prison.
Over the course of 15 years, the 60-year-old former UC Berkeley employee was accused of attacking and sexually assaulting nine women throughout the Golden State.
Last month, Waller was convicted on all 46 counts. According to officials, he continued to claim his innocence and refused to apologize to the victims, who gave their statements on Friday.
“He knows that he’s been proven to be the NorCal Rapist and even though he won’t admit, even though he won’t apologize, even though he won’t show some remorse,” Prosecutor Keith Hill said. “He will know what the jury has said, based on today.”
According to reports, Waller plans to appeal the sentence as he maintains his innocence.
