HOUSTON An ex-Houston police officer broke down in tears after he was sentenced to life in prison Monday for raping a waitress in the back of his patrol car.
Abraham Joseph stood stunned when he heard the sentence. He stared at the jury as he tried to process what just happened to him, then began crying.
The former cops wife collapsed into the arms of another family member in the back of the courtroom.
[...]During the sentencing phase, jurors heard from three other women who said Joseph also assaulted them and threatened to have them deported if they told anyone.
[...]Joseph could have received as little as five years in prison, but jurors chose the maximum sentence instead. They actually sentenced Joseph to two life sentences -- one for each forced sex act -- but the sentences will run concurrently.
