American rapper and actor Kaalan Walker, better known by his stage name KR has been found guilty of raping three teenagers and four young women in 2013.
Walker was sentenced to 50 years in jail. On Monday, October 18, months after being found guilty of the crimes, the 27-year-old was given a sentence by a court sitting in Los Angeles.
According to Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Wallace, who told City News Service that she thinks the defendant is “really a predator,” Superior Court Judge Joseph Brandolino also ordered the prisoner to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
On April 18, a Van Nuys jury found Walker guilty of three charges of forced rape, two counts of statutory rape, and two counts of rape by drunkenness with the purpose to perform oral copulation involving acts committed between 2013 and 2018.
Walker was detained following his sentencing, according to City News Service. Walker was arrested in 2018 on the allegations and freed on bail.
Models who were the rapper’s victims claimed Walker contacted them on social media and offered to help them professionally, according to authorities.
The article claims that Walker would pretend to be a music video shoot or to be taking his victims to see a prominent person in order to entice them to specific areas. According to his victims, he sexually abused them when they were by themselves.
