Already in prison for life, 'stinky rapist' faces more time

TAMPA — A rapist already serving three life prison sentences could receive three more life terms after a Hillsborough County jury convicted him Friday on additional sexual battery charges.

Jerrod Pass, 40, had become known to authorities as the "stinky rapist." He preyed on single black mothers, and his victims reported that he had a foul body odor.

Authorities say that between 2003 and his arrest in 2007 Pass sexually battered at least seven women in blighted neighborhoods near the University of South Florida. In August, he went to trial for sexual battery in the first of those cases. Circuit Judge Wayne Timmerman sentenced Pass to three life terms.

Pass faces the same harsh sentence when he goes back before Timmerman on Nov. 17 for punishment after this second conviction, which included two counts of sexual battery and armed burglary of a dwelling.
