LAS VEGAS (FOX5/AP) -

A judge Wednesday sentenced Las Vegas Strip shooting suspect Ammar Harris to 16 years to life in prison in a separate rape and robbery case.

Harris, 27, was convicted in September of crimes tied to the sexual assault of an 18-year-old woman in June 2010.

Clark County District Court Judge Kathleen Delaney sentenced the mandatory minimum of 10 years for each of three counts tied to the assault conviction, which will run concurrently. Harris was also sentenced to 6 years on a robbery charge.

Harris was also ordered to register as a sex offender as part of the sentencing.

Harris remains jailed after pleading not guilty in the February 2013 shooting and crash on the Las Vegas Strip that killed an aspiring rapper, a cab driver and taxi passenger.

He could get the death penalty in that case.
