The Bolton Hill serial rapist will be sentenced Wednesday.

Michael Privette faces up to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of first degree rape and one count of first degree sex offense. 

Privette's first attack happened in July 2013. A woman who said she took a "hack" (unlicensed taxi) and was sexually assaulted.

Less than a month later, Privette raped another woman in an alley.

Two years later, Privette sexually assaulted two other women less than two weeks apart.

On Aug.19, 2015, in Bolton Hill,  Privette grabbed a woman while she was jogging and threw her into a car before sexually assaulting her. 

The fourth attack occurred almost two weeks later when Privette forced a woman into a desolate area and raped her at knife point.

The victim was able to identify Privette as her assailant when police showed her a group of photos containing Privette's picture.

Police found Privette's DNA on four women he sexually assaulted between 2013 and 2015 in Bolton Hill.
