Strip Shooting Suspect Sentenced in Rape Case

LAS VEGAS  -- A self-described pimp accused in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and fiery crash was sentenced Wednesday in a unrelated case where he was convicted of sexual assault. 

Ammar Harris appeared in Clark County District Court and was sentenced 16 years to life for the sexual assault which occurred in June 2010.

A jury last September found the 27-year-old Harris guilty in a 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.
