Golden State Killer says he’s ‘truly sorry’ as he is sentenced to life for 26 rapes, murders

Sacramento: A former California police officer dubbed the Golden State Killer told victims he was “truly sorry” before he was sentenced to multiple life prison sentences for a decade-long string of rapes and murders that terrorised the state.

Joseph James DeAngelo, 74, pleaded guilty in June to 13 murders and 13 rape-related charges under a plea deal that avoided a possible death sentence.

Joseph James DeAngelo will die in prison for the crimes committed between 1975 and 1986.

The punishment imposed by Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Michael Bowman on Friday means DeAngelo will die in prison for the crimes committed between 1975 and 1986.

Before sentencing, DeAngelo rose from a wheelchair, took off his mask and said to the court: “I listened to all your statements, each one of them, and I’m truly sorry for everyone I’ve hurt.”
