Robert Charles Lee, 40, was convicted on Monday March 27, 2012 of sexually assaulting 10 women in Los Angeles and Orange Counties during a crime spree that lasted almost ten years.
Lee was convicted of 35 charges including nine counts of forcible rape and 14 of forcible oral copulation.
Prosecutors described Lee as a serial rapist who attacked women in the early morning hours.
DNA evidence was presented linking Lee to the assaults, which began in October 1997. Lee was arrested in June 2006, three days after he assaulted his last victim.
Police from several different jurisdictions had teamed up to investigate the case after DNA evidence pointed to a single suspect. DNA samples came from assaults in Los Angeles, Gardena, Carson and Brea.
Lee was also convicted of six counts of burglary, four of sexual penetration by a foreign object, one of sodomy by use of force, and one of assault with intent to commit a felony.
Lee faces more than 300 years to life in prison when he is sentenced April 13.
