Cal State Northridge and Los Angeles police are urging women who may have been victims of sexual assault by a suspect who was recently arrested to come forward.

"The defendant allegedly sexually assaulted another woman and battered a third woman" in July of that year, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.

Friday's sentence of eight years, the maximum penalty, was handed down in one of the criminal cases against Moreno-Jaime. It was issued by a judge after victims anonymously read impact statements in court, describing how the sexual assaults destroyed their lives.

The other cases are ongoing.
