Match.com serial rapist gets life in prison

A sexual predator in the UK who raped five women and attacked two more after meeting them on Match.com has received a sentence of life in prison.

The BBC reports that Jason Lawrance, 50, created two profiles he used to lure his victims from five English counties. He has to serve 12 and a half years, at least, before he is eligible for parole.

Judge Gregory Dickinson, said he was "devious, manipulative and highly dangerous to women".
Lawrance committed three attacks months after marrying his wife who he met via the site.

In the trial's sentencing phase, the judge said: "I am compelled to the dreadful conclusion that you enjoyed raping women. The report contains explicit material that may be especially upsetting for survivors of sexual assault.
