A man accused in series of rapes on Boston’s Esplanade and Moakley Park answered to the first of several charges in court Monday.
Alejandro Done, an accused serial rapist, made the first of many court appearances.
Police say the 46-year-old is linked to six rapes, the first in 2006 at Moakley Park.
The latest news from around the state
He pleaded not guilty to that one at South Boston Municipal Court and did not show his face in court.
Police finally caught up with him at the end of last year when he was working as an Uber driver.
Investigators belief he picked a woman up, but instead of taking her to her destination, he allegedly brought her to a remote location in Cambridge instead.
DNA evidence then linked him to the other sexual assaults, but his defense attorneys say before that arrest he had a clean record.
He is only charged with four of the cases at this point and will answer to a charge from 2007 Thursday and a dangerousness hearing on this charge next Monday.
He's being held without bail until then.
