Bleak future for fortune teller
A fortune teller in California has been convicted of rape after convincing two teenage girls he could change their dismal futures if they had sex with him.
Cesar Duran was found guilty of charges that included forcible rape and lewd acts with minors. He faces up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced next month.
Prosecutor Lana Kim said the man tricked the girls by telling them bad things would happen and he could help by having sex with them.
Defence lawyer Gregory Humphries insisted the girls were lying and said Duran confessed after being put in a cold interrogation room.
