Attleboro Man Sentenced for Child Rape
FALL RIVER — An Attleboro man who repeatedly raped a young teen girl will serve 15 to 18 years in state prison, the Bristol County District Attorney's Office announced Wednesday.
Jason White, 40, pleaded guilty on Dec. 21 in Fall River Superior Court to a host of charges after he raped the girl at least twice a week during the summer and fall of 2018.
According to the D.A.'s office, White gained access to the girl by dating her mother.
He also tried to get the victim to lie to Children’s Advocacy Center interviewers during the investigation.
White admitted to three counts of child rape aggravated by age, and one count each of assault with intent to rape, indecent assault and battery on someone under 14, lewd and lascivious behavior, and witness intimidation.
After his release from prison, White will be placed on supervised probation for another 10 years.
"The repeated sexual abuse committed by the defendant against the young victim is reprehensible," said Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn. "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," he added.
