Man convicted of Lake Highlands rapes sentenced to 85 years

Posted: Updated:

The man known as the Lake Highlands rapist was sentenced to 85 years in prison on Friday.

Cesar Benetiz pleaded guilty in February to a series of rapes that happened in Lake Highlands homes between February and March 2013.

Through an interpreter, Benetiz read a rambling, incoherent letter through an interpreter, saying the devil made him do it and that he was on steroids during the rapes.

He also asked his victims for forgiveness and listened to his victims speak.

The first victim described how her husband was away when Benitez attacked her last year, and she talked about how she couldn't believe what was happening.
