LOS ANGELES (AP) —A man has been convicted of sodomizing three women including two he met through a website claiming to be the largest online dating hub for millionaires.

A Los Angeles jury on Thursday found Joseph Garcia guilty of six felony counts of sodomy and two felony counts of forcible rape.

Prosecutors say Garcia sexually assaulted three women between March 2005 and October 2006. He met two through an online dating site where he described himself as “strikingly handsome” and earning an annual salary of $200,000. He met the third woman at a post office.

The 51-year-old faces up to 120 years to life in state prison when he is sentenced on May 20.
