Roy Waller possessed a vast collection of sexually explicit images of bound Asian women
NBC reports that the ‘NorCal Rapist’, who mainly targeted young Asian women, has been found guilty on 46 counts.
Roy Waller, 60, committed his series of home attacks between 1991 and 2006.
Waller was found guilty on 46 counts including rape, sodomy and kidnapping, related to the assaults of nine women in six counties across Northern California.
The attacker would learn his victims’ names, study their daily routines and then break into their houses at night and tie them up.
Authorities said that he mainly targeted younger Asian women and possessed a vast collection of sexually explicit images of bound Asian women.
“It was heartbreaking, tear-dropping what them young ladies had to go through,” Juror No. 7 said.
“It’s just terrible the way he prowled on them young ladies. They didn’t speak good English. They come to America figuring they’re going to make a better life and then all of this has to happen to them.”
Victims spoke out after the Waller’s verdict.
“Twenty-nine years of waiting and waiting, amazing, amazing, great day, great day,” said Nicole Earnest-Payte who was Waller’s first known victim.
“A lot of work went into solving this case, couldn’t be more grateful to everyone involved.”
Victim Theresa Lane said “I just feel like there’s some things that will never go away. But he’s going away.”
Waller will be sentenced on 18 December.
