Superior Court Judge Joseph Brandolino has thrown the book at disgraced Hollywood actor Kaalan Walker, sentencing the “Superfly” actor to 50 years to life in prison for a series of sexual assaults.
27-year-old Walker was convicted of raping multiple victims, including minors.
If he ever gets out of jail, Walker will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, according to Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Wallace.
Wallace told media outlets the convicted felon is “truly a predator.”
Deputy District Attorney Yasmin Fardghassemi told the jury, “You’re going to see a dark side of him; when they said ‘Stop,’ he didn’t care.”
Walker’s attorney, Andrew Flier, said the women were out for revenge.
He said: “They’re going to lie to you because they know that they fell for his B.S.
“The pattern of Mr. Walker is to make false promises, and they bought it.
“Each one of these women voluntarily made their own decisions.
“He didn’t force them,” Flier claimed.
“It’s pay-back to Mr. Walker and we’re not going to let that happen.”
Walker also appeared in the 2017 Halle Berry-Daniel Craig film “Kings.”
He was arrested in September 2018.
He was convicted on April 18.

According to NBC4:
A Van Nuys jury convicted Walker on April 18 of three counts of forcible rape, two counts each of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and rape of an intoxicated victim, and one count of assault with intent to commit oral copulation involving crimes between 2013 and 2018.
Jurors acquitted him of two counts of forcible rape and one count of forcible digital penetration involving three other alleged victims.
According to The Wrap:
Prosecutors said the attacks occurred between 2013 and 2018.
Three of the victims were underage.
Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Wallace told Rolling Stone that Walker “name-dropped Drake and used his connection to Halle Berry” in order to gain access to women.
“We feel that with this verdict, the jury gave these victims back their voices. This was very sophisticated,” Wallace told the outlet, adding:
“Once they were there, it wasn’t about doing photo shoots, it was about assaulting them.”
