PHOENIX (AP) -- A man accused of breaking into the Scottsdale apartments of two women and raping them in 2012 has pleaded guilty to six felony charges.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 19-year-old Danny T. Jackson entered his plea Thursday.
Jackson is facing at least 18 years in prison when he's sentenced on July 15.
A judge told Jackson that the two rape charges each carry up a minimum of nine years in prison and a maximum of 12 years. For the four other charges, Jackson will get lifetime probation.
Under his plea agreement, six other felonies were dismissed including burglary and kidnapping.
Authorities say the rapes occurred days apart in October 2012. Jackson was a student at Scottsdale's Chaparral High School at the time.
