MANASSAS, Va. (WUSA9) -- After having his sentencing postponed in February, Aaron Thomas is expected to be sentenced on Friday. 

Thomas pleaded guilty in November 2012 to abducting three teenagers, then raping and sodomizing two of them on Halloween night in 2009 in Prince William County.

Last year, Thomas also pleaded guilty to raping a 41-year-old woman in Loudoun County in 2001.

Thomas has been linked to more than 15 attacks from Virginia to Rhode Island. After the Halloween rapes, Prince William County formed the 'East Coast Rapist Task Force. Task force members whittled 700 suspects down to six, then detectives closed in on Thomas after obtaining his DNA from a discarded cigarette butt.
