Convicted Manhattan Heights rapist sentenced to life in prison

EL PASO, Texas - Convicted rapist Arturo Valtierra-Payan has been sentenced in the case.

The jury sentenced him to 99 years for burglary of habitation, no fine; and life sentences for the three aggravated sexual assault charges and the aggravated robbery charge, and $10,000 for each of those charges.

An El Paso jury convicted Valtierra in the attack of a woman in late June 2013.

He was found guilty of three aggravated sexual assault charges, one burglary charge, and one aggravated robbery charge in this one case.

Valtierra is accused by police of raping two other women on separate occasions in May and June 2013.

Those other cases are pending and the District Attorney's Office has not decided yet if it will proceed with those cases.
