Dallas police confirmed Monday accused Fair Park-area rapist Van Dralen Dixson has been charged with seven new counts of aggravated robbery.
Dixson was arrested in mid-September and is charged in five of the nine sexual assaults in the Fair Park area over the summer. He is currently in jail on more than $5 million bond.
The seven aggravated robbery charges are connected to the sex assault cases. Dixson now faces a total of 12 felony charges.
Last week, the attorney for Dixson said he would enter a not guilty plea for his client.
Attorney Kenneth Weatherspoon is Dixson's court appointed attorney and said he will enter the not guilty plea despite Dixson admitting to two of the attacks and claiming the others were prostitution deals gone bad.
