Man sentenced to 30 years for High Line Canal Trail assaults

DENVER - A man who pleaded guilty to assaulting two women on the High Line Canal Trail has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Demaricus Bookhart assaulted two women in separate attacks on Aug. 18 and Aug. 26, 2016.

One of the victims was injured, and a stolen iPod belonging to the other woman was found with Bookhart's belongings.
