Attleboro man receives 15 to 18 years in prison for raping a child
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WLNE) – A forty-year-old man convicted of repeatedly raping a teenage girl has been sentenced to 15 to 18 years in state prison after a litany of charges last year in Fall River Superior Court, announced Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III.
Jason White plead guilty on December 21 to indictments charging him with three counts of rape of a child-aggravated by age, and one count each of assault with intent to rape, indecent assault and battery on a person under the age of 14, lewd and lascivious behavior, and witness intimidation. White gained access to the girl after dating her mother and raped the victim twice a week during the fall and summer of 2018.
White also attempted to get the victim to lie to forensic interviewers with the Children’s Advocacy Center during the investigation. Upon his release from prison, the defendant will be placed on supervised probation for 10 years.
“The repeated sexual abuse committed by the defendant against the young victim is reprehensible. The sentence imposed by the court is more than justified. I hope this gives the victim some closure and she can move forward with her life,” District Attorney Quinn said.
