ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A man convicted of raping a woman in Tampa after posing as a police officer has been sentenced to life in prison.
A Hillsborough County judge sentenced 31-year-old Luis Munuzuri-Harris on Thursday. A jury convicted him last month.
Munuzuri-Harris represented himself when the trial began. He cross-examined his victim before making a sudden request for attorneys.
During closing arguments, Munuzuri-Harris stood, pointed at the victim and blurted out things not allowed as evidence during the trial. The judge ordered him removed from the courtroom.
The 28-year-old victim testified that she was pulled over in July by Munuzuri-Harris, who had a blue light in his car. She said she was handcuffed and eventually raped in the back seat.
