A Hemet man was found guilty Wednesday after DNA evidence taken during a theft conviction linked him to two unsolved rapes committed roughly 10 years ago.

Kevin Lawrence Saint John, 45, faces 40 years to life in state prison after a jury convicted him of two felony counts of forcible rape, which carried sentence enhancement allegations, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office.

In 2012, Saint John’s DNA was entered into a state database after he was convicted of receiving stolen property.

His DNA matched with evidence collected during an investigation into two rapes committed in 2004, the district attorney’s office said in a statement. He was ultimately arrested at his home in Rancho Cucamonga.
