A former Kennesaw State student will spend nearly two decades in prison for raping three women.
Tyree Robert Mew, 25, pleaded guilty to three assault charges on Monday during jury selection for his trial, according to a Cobb County district attorney’s office news release.
Between September 2015 and March 2016, Mew attacked three women at different homes near campus, prosecutors said.
He was a student at the time, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported. Two of the women were also KSU students.
“These three strong young women came forward despite facing the scrutiny of family members, friends, and members of the student body at KSU,” said prosecutor Meredith Florio.
One of the attacks was at a party in November 2015 and involved Romelo Lewis, who later agreed to serve two years for false imprisonment in exchange for testifying against Mew, according to DA spokeswoman Kim Isaza.
In that case, according to a warrant, the victim said she blacked out.
In the other two cases, warrants indicate Mew violently forced himself onto the women.
Mew was sentenced to 18 years in prison and 12 years of probation after, according to court documents. Mew has been in jail since May 6, 2016. He will get credit for that time he’s served.
