Man pleads guilty in Lake Highlands serial rape case

Posted: Updated:

A man accused in a series of sexual assaults in Dallas pleaded guilty on Monday.

Police arrested Cesar Benitez almost a year ago for allegedly attacking three women in their Lake Highlands homes in February and March 2013.

Prosecutors said DNA evidence linked him to the crimes. Benitez was being held on a $4.5 million bond.

The Dallas County District Attorney's Office said he pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated sexual assault with a deadly weapon and two charges of burglary of a habitation and sexual assault.

Benitez will be sentenced at a later date, the district attorney's office said.
