ATLANTA — The man accused of sexually assaulting multiple women in East Point is going to jail for the rest of his life, officials say.

Officials say last year, Young raped four different women at gunpoint between Sept. 3 and Sept. 9 after forcing most of them to withdraw money from bank ATMs.

After the sentencing, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard stated that "it's always important to take a serial rapist off the street" and that he hopes the "community can rest easier after today's guilty plea."
