Sentencing due for Las Vegas carnage defendant

Posted at 7:06 AM, Feb 26, 2014

Sentencing is scheduled Wednesday for a self-described pimp convicted of rape and robbery in one case while he awaits trial later this year in a separate Las Vegas Strip shooting and fiery crash that left three people dead.

Ammar Harris faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years, and Clark County District Court Judge Kathleen Delaney could sentence him to up to life in prison.

A jury last September found the 27-year-old Harris guilty in a June 2010 sex attack on an 18-year-old woman at a Las Vegas condominium.

Harris remains jailed after pleading not guilty in the Strip shooting and crash that killed an aspiring rapper, a cab driver and taxi passenger a little over a year ago.

He could get the death penalty in that case.
