Thirty-eight-year-old Sean Banks was found guilty Monday of five charges, including rape and burglary. He could face 44 years to life in prison.

At trial, one woman said the Del Mar man forced himself on her during their first date, although she told him to stop.

She testified that she met Banks through the website ChristianMingle in order to find a mate who attended church and believed in God.

A second victim who met Banks on also testified.

The defense argued that Banks, a computer technician and former Navy lieutenant, stopped his sexual advances when the women asked him.
