SEATTLE (AP) - A Seattle lawyer who pleaded guilty to raping five women at massage parlors has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Danford Grant pleaded guilty May 7 to third-degree rape charges as his trial was beginning on first-degree rape charges that could have brought a life sentence.

Grant was formally sentenced Monday in King County Superior Court.

The 49-year-old is a married father of three and former partner in a Seattle law firm who once worked in the Seattle city attorney’s office. He admitted raping the five women in 2011 and 2012.
