A serial rapist in New York has been handed a prison sentence more than four centuries long, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

Boker Thomas, 31, was found guilty of raping seven women in elevators, stairwells or apartments, before being traced through DNA and security camera footage, the report said.

The convicted man, sentenced to 430 years, had pleaded not guilty.

Four of his victims were in court for the verdict, including one who was just 13 at the time of the rape in 2008.

“You say you are not a monster, but you are a predator intent on hurting young children. You are evil, you are a sociopath, you are a pathological violent criminal,” Judge Vincent Del Giudice was quoted as saying.
