A serial rapist and sex offender who kidnapped couples and rapes the wives in front of their husbands, Albert Morake, has been handed down the harshest of prison terms by a South African court.

Morake, 35, was jailed 1,535 years by a judge as he never showed any remorse during his sentencing.

According to Worldwide Weird News, Morake's reign of terror began in 2007 and has been fingered in more than 100 cases. He was found guilty of 144 of the 175 charges he faced, including 30 counts of rape, 41 counts of kidnapping, 24 counts of armed robbery, many counts of attempted robbery and attempted murder.

During the trial, Morake maintained his innocence and denied kidnapping and raping women in front of their husbands.

But the judge, Rean Strydom, said that Morake confronted couples who were walking or riding a car together. He then robbed them at gunpoint, tied up the men and raped the women.

The judge said that on occasions, when he had accomplices, Morake also allowed them to rape the women.

The victims were overwhelmed with joy over the 1,535 year jail sentence as they no longer have to be afraid to go outside.

A victim, Keabetswe Mawasha, said that she was unable to celebrate her birthdays until now as she was kidnapped and raped by Morake on her birthday.
