LONG BEACH, Calif. (CBS/AP) Charles Juan Proctor has been sentenced to 11 life terms, plus 433 years in prison, for his slashing rampage on several California women.

The 45-year-old man was convicted Aug. 13 of 22 counts of attempted murder, mayhem, robbery and other charges.

Proctor was also ordered to pay $58,000 in medical expenses for two women whose necks were slit, and $10,000 to the state victims' restitution fund.

Prosecutors say all the attacks occurred within three months in early 2008, and most of his victims were either Long Beach-area shop owners or their employees.

The serial slasher was dubbed "the box cutter" by investigators during his lengthy terror spree, for using box cutters during the attacks, according to local station KTLA.

Proctor was extradited to Los Angeles County from Nevada, where he was serving a prison term for a similar attack there in 2007.
