Man sentenced to more than 1,500 years in prison for rape of teen relative

FRESNO, CA (WCMH) — A man in California has been sentenced to 1,503 years in prison for the rape of a teen relative over a four-year period.

According to KNBC, Rene Lopez was found guilty in September by a jury on 186 felony counts of sexual assault, including rape of a minor.

The Fresno Bee reports it is the longest-known prison sentence in Fresno Superior Court history.

Prosecutors say the victim was raped multiples times a week between May of 2009 to May of 2013.

KNBC reports the judge told Lopez he is a “serious danger to society” and said that Lopez never showed any remorse and only blamed the victim for his situation.
