A Maryland man was sentenced to 150 years in prison on Wednesday after he was found guilty earlier this year on 11 counts of second- and third-degree sexual offenses reports the AP. Prosecutors say 40-year-old Joey Poindexter, dubbed the “Beer Pong Rapist,” who met his victims in beer pong tournaments and bars, was convicted of assaulting five men, but prosecutors believe there are at least two dozen more unidentified victims after police found that Poindexter recorded and took dozens of photos on his phone of himself assaulting several unconscious, incoherent men; prosecutors believe that Poindexter assaulted an additional 30 men. Ramon Korionoff of the Montgomery County State Attorney’s Office stated the series of rapes began in 2011 and expressed disgust with Poindexter’s actions.
“Completely heinous and terrible sexual assaults. He did this knowing full well that he was taking advantage of people that were intoxicated.”
Other reports state that the series of assaults may have occurred over the span of the last 10 years. Surveillance video from one bar in College Park, Md. shows Poindexter, a property appraiser, buying a Long Island Iced Tea for one of his victims, which the victim consumed, with Poindexter escorting the drugged victim outside. The victim awoke the next morning in Poindexter’s home to find himself wearing a pair of Poindexter’s shorts and found his clothes in a pile next to him on the floor. The victim, who had no memory of the previous evening, approached police with the suspicion that he was sexually assaulted. The victim questioned Poindexter, while wearing a police wire, about the night’s events with Poindexter responding, “If it makes you feel any better, I don’t have any (expletive) AIDS, if anything did happen.”
Additional victims later came forward after investigators issued a public appeal for the case; some victims had no inclination they had even been assaulted until they were shown photo and video evidence. Poindexter’s lawyer says her client intends on appealing the 150-year sentence.
