Man Sentenced For Raping Women He Met On ChristianMingle, Match.com
A California man was sentenced Friday to 37 years to life in prison for raping two women he met on the dating sites ChristianMingle.com and Match.com, according to the Los Angeles Times.
[su_center_ad]Sean Banks,39, a computer technician and former Navy officer, showed no remorse for his crimes while in court.
GottaLaff from RadioOrNot reports, “Instead, the rapist said that he “was willing to drop his appeal if one of the victims would take a polygraph test.” Nice. How respectful. What a guy.”
Oh Lord, please protect me from your followers. Amen.
Gloria Allred, the noted Los Angeles attorney, attended the sentencing on behalf of the victim who met Banks through ChristianMingle.
Allred took issue with Banks’ offer about the polygraph test.
“In 39 years of practicing law,” Allred said, “I don’t think I have ever heard a statement more disrespectful to the victim and the jury’s verdict. It’s an ultimate insult of disrespect.”
Allred warned other women “to be aware of the risk of online dating.”
The 24-year-old victim said: “That night changed my life. Scary people are not just in movies. They are real.”
She explained in court that during their first date in October 2012, she invited Banks to her apartment to watch a movie. She said that he quickly began making physical advances.
“I didn’t believe that was happening and I said at the top of my lungs” for him to stop, she said.
She said later in court, “I pray for him every day. I pray that he changes.”
