FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A former YMCA karate instructor is heading to prison for raping an underage student.

The Sun Chronicle reports that 41-year-old Corey Ruel, of North Attleborough, was sentenced to five years in prison Monday.

Ruel pleaded guilty to statutory rape in March. He was originally charged with aggravated rape.

Police say Ruel raped a 13-year-old girl over an eight-month period at his home and at the Attleboro YMCA where he was a part-time instructor.

A judge ordered Ruel to have no contact with the victim.

Ruel also must register as a sex offender, attend sex offender’s counseling and refrain from having unsupervised contact with any other children other than his own.
