A man convicted of raping two victims has been sentenced to more than 250 years in prison, San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie M. Dumanis announced Friday.
Stephen Boyle, 40, was sentenced to 250 years plus an additional 13 years in state prison for six counts of rape involving two victims.
He’s the former president of the South County chapter of the “Grifters,” a motorcycle club that’s otherwise known as a family-friendly, community service-oriented organization, according to the DA’s office.
Back in October, Boyle was convicted of six felony counts of forcible rape.
According to investigators, in October 2011 Boyle attended an annual motorcycle camping event in Warner Springs. There, he kidnapped a victim, drove to a remote location four miles away from the campsite and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint.
During the investigation, police and the DA’s office learned of two previous rapes committed by Boyle.
Boyle was sentenced in front of his victims and their families Friday in court. They made emotional statements at the sentencing.
DA Dumanis says Boyle’s sentencing is a prime example of justice being served.
“The victims in this case suffered terribly at the hands of their rapist,” DA Dumanis said. “They both demonstrated extraordinary bravery for coming forward to report the defendant. Thanks their courage and to the hard work of Deputy District Attorney Laurie Hauf, who prosecuted the case, this predator will spend the rest of his life behind bars.”
