TAMPA, Fla.- A jury took just 16 minutes to return a guilty verdict against a 38-year-old man who has only spent three years outside prison since he was 16.
Tommy Lee Sailor, who now faces life in prison, did not react when the verdict was announced Thursday. He will be sentenced May 5.
Authorities say the victim had somehow managed to call 911 during the New Year's Day 2010 attack. On the recording, jurors heard victim's screams and the attacker's voice. At one point he told her he was "a serial killer and a serial rapist."
Sailor had been convicted in two previous rape cases.
The victim met Sailor at a bar and he offered her a ride home. They stopped at his house, where authorities say the attack took place.
