Aaron Thomas indicted on six rape charges in Prince George's County
The man dubbed the “East Coast rapist” has been indicted on six charges of first degree rape for alleged attacks in Prince George’s County.
Aaron Thomas has already been sentenced to five life terms plus 80 years in connection with a series of sexual assaults in Leesburg and Prince William County. Authorities say Thomas committed more than 17 attacks in Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
“While we know that Mr. Thomas will spend the rest of his life in prison for his crimes, it is important that we prosecute him for the attacks he committed in our county, so these six victims can receive justice and closure from this terrible incident in their lives,” said Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks.
