A man could get up to life in prison for raping and robbing women who advertised themselves as escorts.

Tynathan Felder was found guilty Monday for the crimes he committed against the women he met on Backpages.com last summer.

“There is no excuse for sexual assault, and there are no circumstances that justify violence against women,” said Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III. “I believe the jury returned the correct verdict, given the violence and terror that these women were subjected to.”

Another man, Elbert Pope, is awaiting trial for his role in the rapes as well. A third suspect was never identified.
