Five Points serial rapist gets life in prison

Posted: Updated:

A Dallas serial rapist who preyed on children is going to prison for life.

Jose Rico was convicted last month for raping two girls, ages 12 and 14, and a woman in northeast Dallas in 2009.

Rico targeted the girls while they were alone and getting ready for school and the woman was also home alone when Rico attacked.

The assaults were concentrated in an area of northeast Dallas known as Five Points, located off Park Lane east of Central Expressway.

Rico fled to Mexico but was captured last year.

Rico must serve at least 30 years before he's eligible for parole and if paroled he would be deported.
