Serial rapist convicted decades after attacks

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A serial rapist is finally off the streets of Memphis.

Tony Sea, 45, pleaded guilty to raping four women between September 2000 and May 2001 after breaking into their homes.

The attacks happened in Binghampton, Frayser, and Raleigh, and the victims ranged in age between 21 and 45.

After raping the women, Sea tied them up with telephone cords.

Sea was sentenced to 40 years in prison without the possibility of parole. He was captured in 2012--more than a decade after committing the crimes--when DNA from the crimes were tested. The DNA also linked Sea to several other rape cases.
