Two-time rapist gets 51-year prison term for Tacoma attacks

Pierce County Superior Court Judge Bryan Chushcoff today sentenced a man convicted of raping a 15-year-old girl to 51 years in prison.

A jury convicted Aaron Olson, 23, of two counts of second-degree rape last month. Prosecutors alleged he and another man – Anthony Emery Jr., also 23 – attacked the girl in May 2005.

Emery pleaded guilty last month and received 17 years, six months in prison. Chushcoff ordered that sentence to be served after Emery completes a 24-year term for another rape, according to court records.

Both he and Olson were convicted earlier this year of raping a then 28-year-old woman after abducting her from the parking lot outside her workplace in 2006.
