Max Danilo Martinez, 33, faces a maximum possible sentence of 113 years in state prison if convicted of all charges. The incidents took place at various locations in Orange County and in Corona, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s office.
Martinez , while an assistant manager at a store in Westminster Mall, is accused of raping an 18-year-old co-worker in a motel after work on June 10, 2002. He is also accused of picking up an 18-year-old girl he picked up walking along Fairview Road in Garden Grove on Oct. 11, 2005 and the next day taking her to a motel and raping her.
Other alleged rapes took place in Corona, Orange and Santa Ana. He was arrested on Dec. 7, 2009 in Santa Ana in connection with the last incident and was later connected to the earlier assaults by DNA evidence, according to the district attorney.
Two of the victims were minors, 14 and 17 years of age.
The trial is being held in Central Justice Center in Santa Ana.
