The man known in Orlando as the "Hello Kitty" rapist, so named for his identifying tattoo, was sentenced to life in prison Friday.
A judge sentenced Edgar Collazo to concurrent life terms, plus an additional 37½ years behind bars.
It took an Orange County jury a little more than an hour in July to find Collazo, 25, guilty of three attacks in a span of four years.
Prosecutors said Collazo raped an Afghanistan war veteran at the Bellagio Apartments in 2010, and a college student at the Auvers Village Apartments in 2012. He then attempted to rape a woman in an Orlando IHOP parking lot in 2014.
