SEATTLE (AP) - A man known as the “Westlake groper” has been sentenced to more than three years in jail.

The Seattle Times reports (https://is.gd/wyrchl ) that Daryl Sharma of Kirkland pleaded guilty last week to five counts of assault with sexual motivation.

The 36-year-old was arrested in October. He became known as the “Westlake groper” after one of his victims posted a picture of him on social media and complained about a lack of police response to her report.

The photo prompted more than a dozen women to contact police and report that Sharma had groped them.

Sharma had been under supervision by the state Department of Corrections at the time following a conviction of third-degree sexual assault.

He has a history of groping charges dating back to 2002.
