A 33-year-old man was sentenced today to 53 years in state prison for raping three women in Long Beach two years ago, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

David Paul Stephan pleaded no contest today to three counts of forcible rape and was immediately sentenced by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Gary Ferrari.

Deputy District Attorney Elena Abramson of the Elder Abuse Section prosecuted the case.
