A man suspected of being involved in three kidnappings and rapes, who at one point skirted major prison time, was sentenced to life in prison for violation of probation charges.
Jermichael Lindsey, 33, was sentenced to life in prison plus 15 years on two counts each of armed robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery with a firearm from 2014.
Lindsey violated the terms of his probation when he was arrested in October 2015 as a suspect in the kidnapping a woman by forcing her into the trunk of a car and then raping her at an abandoned home on Tropicaire Street.
The crime was one in a long line of similar crimes Lindsey has been linked to, including a 2010 case in which he and another man kidnapped two women at gunpoint and raped them at the same home.
Both men were acquitted during a two-day trial in 2012.
Lindsey will face a jury in three outstanding sexual assault cases in October. He has pleaded not guilty.
