Convicted sex offender to spend life in prison 

A convicted sex offender who cut off his electronic tracking device and went on to assault four women will spend the rest of his life in prison.

U-T San Diego ( ) says Leonard Scroggins was sentenced Tuesday to 195 years to life in prison.

Last month a jury convicted the 34-year-old of seven felonies, including committing a forcible lewd act on a child, attempted kidnapping, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

Scroggins has two previous felony convictions for rape and making a criminal threat.

A transient from Napa County, Scroggins cut off his ankle bracelet in May 2010.

In the following days he stole a woman's purse, tried to rob a teenage girl, tried to kidnap a girl and a woman. He was arrested after an intense manhunt.
