'Superfly' actor Kaalan Walker sentenced to 50 years in prison for sexual assault 

Authorities said he sexually assaulted aspiring models who he had reached out to on social media and promised work opportunities. 

Actor and rapper Kaalan Walker has been sentenced to 50 years to life for sexual assault. 

Walker was convicted in April of three counts of forcible rape, one count of assault to commit oral copulation 

Walker, 27, appeared in the 2018 remake of the 1970s film "Superfly" and starred alongside Halle Berry and Daniel Craig in the 2017 drama "Kings."

He was arrested in Los Angeles in September 2018 and accused of a series of sexual assaults on aspiring models

who he contacted through social media and promised work opportunities, police said. Authorities said the allegations dated to 2016.

Walker was arraigned a month later on nine felony sexual assault charges and was held on more than $1 million bail.

Attorney Andrew Flier said Walker's sentence is "draconian" and called the trial "very unfair."
