27-Year-Old Superfly Actor, Kaalan Walker Sentenced To 50 Years Imprisonment For Multiple Counts Of Rape

American actor and rapper, Kaalan Walker, known popularly as KR, has been sentenced to 50 years imprisonment for rape after being convicted of raping seven ladies; four women and three teenage girls, in attacks as far back as 2013, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 27-year-old was sentenced by a court sitting in Los Angeles on Monday, the 18th of October 2022, months after he was convicted of the charges. Walker was however acquitted of two counts of ‘forcible rape and one count of forcible digital penetration’ involving three other alleged victims.

Superior Court Judge Joseph Brandolino also ordered the convict to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, according to Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Wallace, who told City News Service that she believes the defendant is “truly a predator.”

A Van Nuys jury convicted Walker on April 18 of three counts of forcible rape, two counts of statutory rape, and two counts of rape by intoxication with intent to commit oral copulation involving crimes between 2013 and 2018. Walker was arrested in 2018 on the charges and was released on bail, but he was ordered held after sentencing, according to City News Service.

 

 

Deputy District Attorney Yasmin Fardghassemi had told the court that Walker used his Instagram and Twitter accounts to lure his victims by inviting them to photoshoots or music video shoots, as well as claiming he would introduce them to people to further their career, before assaulting them.

Walker’s attorney, Andrew Flier, meanwhile claimed Walker was innocent and had been ‘portrayed as a monster.’ He told the court that the victims were seeking ‘revenge’ after realising the actor had made them false promises, adding: “They’re going to lie to you because they know that they fell for his B.S.”

“The pattern of Mr. Walker is to make false promises, and they bought it…each one of these women voluntarily made their own decisions,” He argued.

Walker is best known for starring as William McGee in 2017’s Kings alongside Halle Berry and Daniel Craig as well as playing JuJu in 2018’s Superfly, as well as featuring in two episodes of the BET series In Contempt in 2018.
