(Scroll down for video) Women are furious that Groupon refused to remove a deal after they were sexually assaulted by a massage therapist.

According to prosecutors, over 30 women were sexually assaulted by 37-year-old Daniel Armand Lockett of Kalamazoo, Michigan.

The women called Groupon to inform them about the sexual abuse after filing a complaint with police, but the company chose to continue running the deal, causing other women to be assaulted by Lockett.

Two brave women spoke in court about the negative effects the rapes had on their lives. Before sentencing, Lockett apologized to his victims, but he added that just like the victims, his life has been effected.

He told the judge that he is a Christian man, and he has three children and a wife whom he loves very much, and just like the victims were hurt due to his abuse, his home situation was also hurt.

At sentencing, Judge Paul Bridenstine said that the sexual abuse was not a case of being “careless, inadvertent or unprofessional, but rather it was intentional, assaultive, harmful, and criminal, and for that, you deserve to be punished.”

Lockett was sentenced to a minimum of 57 months to a maximum of 15 years incarceration with the Michigan Department of Corrections.

He must also register as a sex offender.
