VISTA (CNS) - The one-time leader of a South Bay motorcycle club was ordered Friday to spend the rest of his life in prison for raping two women.
Stephen Boyle, 40, was handed a 263-year prison term by Vista Superior Court Judge Richard Mills during a hearing attended by the victims and their families.
In October, a jury convicted Boyle, former president of a local chapter of the "Grifters" motorcycle club, of six counts of forcible rape.
In October 2011, while at an annual motorcycle camping event in Warner Springs, Boyle kidnapped a woman, drove her to a remote location four miles away and sexually assaulted her while threatening her with a knife, according to prosecutors.
While investigating those crimes, authorities learned of two previous rapes committed by Boyle, according to District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.
"The victims in this case suffered terribly at the hands of their rapist," Dumanis said. "They both demonstrated extraordinary bravery for coming forward to report the (crimes)."
