Jury finds Dorsey guilty in series of sexual assaults

Anchorage Daily News / adn.comOctober 24, 2012 

An Anchorage jury found an accused serial rapist guilty on all charges against him Wednesday.

Richard Dorsey was found guilty of four counts of first degree sexual assault, two counts of attempted first degree sexual assault and six other second and third degree assault charges, according to prosecutor Brittany Dunlop.

The charges stem from a series of assaults at knife point on women working as prostitutes in Anchorage between 2001-2004.

Dorsey was not arrested until 2009, when DNA found on a Styrofoam cup linked him to the long-cold cases.

His sentencing is scheduled for January 11.

He faces a sentencing range of 40-99 years.
