Most victims were walking alone in the evening and were subjected to terrifying sex attacks.
Avci had pleaded guilty to seven counts of rape.
County Court Judge Jeanette Morrish said yesterday Avci had waged a “cowardly, aggressive and violent campaign” on vulnerable women but believed his prospects of rehabilitation were good because of his youth and his return to the Muslim faith.
She sentenced Avci to 16 years in jail, with a minimum of nine. The maximum term for rape is 25 years. Continued.
