An Oroville man is sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to forcibly raping 3 separate victims in a crime spree that began in February of this year. Nicholas Snowden will also be required to register as a sex offender for life. In all three cases, Snowden allegedly offered his victims a ride and then took them to remote locations and sexually assaulted them. DNA evidence found on one victim led authorities to Snowden. According to Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, an investigative assistant noticed a vehicle matching the description of the suspected vehicle, leading to Snowden's arrest.
