The Takamatsu High Court on Tuesday rejected an appeal by a man over his 28-year prison term for raping and robbing eight junior high and high school girls from fall 2009 to summer 2010 in Kagawa Prefecture.

According to the court, Makoto Onishi, 27, pretended to have been hit by the girls while they were riding bikes and then threatened them by saying that yakuza would come to their homes unless they had sex with him and handed over money and underwear.
