"A man who kidnapped and raped two young women in Buckhead while posing as an Uber driver was sentenced Friday to life plus 60 years in prison, authorities said.
Gabriel Rendon-Villasana, 33, of Duluth, was found guilty of pretending to be an Uber driver at least twice, convincing women to get into his car when they left bars and then sexually assaulting them inside his vehicle, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
“This man tossed aside my basic rights as a human being,” one of the women said. “The consequences of drinking are a hangover, a headache, nausea. Not rape. Not kidnapping. Not aggravated assault.”
