Actor Callan Walker has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for rape


The Los Angeles Times reported that SuperFly actor Kaalan “KR” Walker was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison on Monday. He was found guilty of raping four women and three teenage girls he met on social media.

Superior Court Judge Joseph Brandolino also told Walker, 27, that he must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Wallace told the office she believes the actor is “truly a predator.”

In April, a jury in Van Nuys, Calif., found Walker guilty of three counts of aggravated rape, one count of assault with intent to commit oral intercourse, two counts of statutory rape and two counts of rape by intoxication, according to various sources.

Walker was found not guilty of two counts of aggravated rape and one count of digital intrusion by a jury. In March, Deputy District Attorney Yasmin Fardghasemi said in her opening statement, “You’re going to see his dark side.”

Prosecutors said Walker began contacting women, including aspiring models, on Instagram and Twitter in 2013. He told them he could help them get jobs and meet celebrities, according to Rolling Stone.

Police say Walker would leave the women alone for two years and then sexually assault them. Fardghassemi said at the time, “When they said ‘Stop,’ he didn’t care,” according to sources.

This is said in a statement from the Los Angeles police Walker was first arrested in Van Nuys in 2018 after police linked him to a series of sexual assaults.

Walker’s first film was Kings, starring Halle Berry and Daniel Craig. He then had a two-episode arc on the drama TV show In Contempt and a part in the remake of the 1970s thriller SuperFly.

He is also known for his work as a rapper. In 2017, he released the EP The Intermission. Just after his conviction in April, Walker Flyer’s attorney said in a statement to USA Today that his client “maintains his innocence” and “did not receive a fair trial because many important issues were left out of court.”

At the time, he said his client had been “portrayed as a monster” and that he planned to appeal.
