SAN ANTONIO – The man known as the Medical Center Rapist was back in a courtroom Tuesday to take a plea deal in his four remaining aggravated sexual assault cases.

In 2020, Anton Harris was sentenced by a jury to 99 years for one of five aggravated sexual assaults he was accused of committing.

For more than a year, Harris terrorized the Medical Center area as several women were robbed and raped inside their apartments. The crimes were committed when Harris was in high school.

Tuesday in court, Harris agreed to a plea deal in the four remaining cases he was charged.

The deal was for 35 years.

Harris will officially be sentenced Wednesday, to allow for a victim to be present and give a victim impact statement.
