MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. — One of the two men accused of drugging and raping several women was found guilty in court Thursday.

Joshua Humphrey was found guilty by a jury on two counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct. His sentencing has yet to be scheduled.

Humphrey and co-defendant Larry Stiff were accused of drugging alcoholic drinks belonging to women they met online before raping them. They were charged last July in two cases: one from October 2013 and one from February 2016.

According to court documents obtained last year, Humphrey refilled a prescription for the heavy pain killer Tramadol 22 times within a six month period in 2015.

The Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office said Humphrey and Stiff were being investigated for up to 25 rapes involving date rape drugs. Several women told FOX 17 they were sexually abused by Humphrey and/or Stiff, saying they met them online and didn’t known them.

Humphrey’s co-defendant Larry Stiff is scheduled to stand trial Monday, June 12.
