A 20-year-old man in Sacramento was sentenced to over 149 years in prison for raping two women at gun point, although the crime is shocking, what the man had to say to the victims left the courtroom in disbelief.

A 20-year-old man who terrorized the Natomas area for months has been sentenced to 149 years to life in prison.

Sammie Lee Nichols was convicted in June of two counts of rape and 16 other felony charges. He was a teenager in late 2007 and early 2008 when he went on a crime spree in North Natomas that set an entire community on edge.

During the sentencing Friday, Nichols blamed his female victims, saying they had underage sex with him. He even said that he was the real victim.


The prosecutor called Nichols a coward and a monster who should forever lose his freedom.
