Actor Kaalan Walker Sentenced to 50 Years in Prison for Rape

The Los Angeles Times reported that SuperFly actor Kaalan “KR” Walker was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison on Monday. He was found guilty of raping four women and three teenage girls he met on social media.

Superior Court Judge Joseph Brandolino also told Walker, who is 27 years old that he must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Wallace told the service that she thinks the actor is “truly a predator.”

In April, a jury in Van Nuys, California, found Walker guilty of three counts of forcible rape, one count of assault to commit oral copulation, two counts of statutory rape and two counts of rape by intoxication, according to various sources.

Walker was found not guilty on two counts of forcible rape and one count of digital penetration by the jury. In March, Deputy District Attorney Yasmin Fardghassemi said in her opening statement, “You’re going to see a dark side of him.”

Prosecutors said that Walker started contacting women, including aspiring models, on Instagram and Twitter in 2013. He told them he could help them get jobs and meet celebrities, according to Rolling Stone.

Police say that Walker would get the women alone for two years and then sexually assault them. Fardghassemi said at the time, “When they said, ‘Stop,’ he didn’t care,” according to sources.

A news release from the Los Angeles Police Department says that Walker was first caught in Van Nuys in 2018 after police linked him to a string of sexual assaults.

Walker’s first movie was Kings, which starred Halle Berry and Daniel Craig. After that, he had a two-episode arc on the drama TV show In Contempt and a part in the remake of the 1970s thriller SuperFly.

He is also known for his work as a rapper. In 2017, he put out the EP The Intermission. Just after his conviction in April, Walker’s lawyer, Flier said in a statement to USA Today that his client “maintains his innocence” and “did not receive a fair trial as many important issues were excluded by the Court.”

At the time, he said that his client was “portrayed as a monster” and that he planned to appeal.
