Prison for Rehoboth Man Who Raped Friend’s 14-Year-Old Sister
REHOBOTH — A Rehoboth man who was arrested for indecent assault while out on bail on child rape charges will spend seven to 10 years in state prison.
The Bristol County D.A.'s office said Trevor Breckenridge, now 21 years old, received the sentence after pleading guilty to two counts of rape and abuse of a child.
He will also have to register as a sex offender and spend three years on probation following his prison term, after he was sentenced last Friday.
Breckenridge raped the 14-year-old sister of a friend of his while he was at their home hanging out with the victim's older brother in June 2020.
The victim told her brother's girlfriend — and, later, police — that Breckenridge entered her bedroom and pinned her down despite her trying to fight him off by kicking him in the chest.
Breckenridge grabbed her ankle and neck, then strangled and raped her during the assault, according to the D.A.'s office.
Authorities were called immediately and the victim was taken to a hospital.
After his arrest on child rape charges, Breckenridge posted $5,000 bail — and was arrested again for allegedly groping a female victim.
He faces charges in that case of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14.
His bail was revoked following the second arrest and he remains in custody.
"The defendant took advantage of his position of trust to violently assault the victim. After being released on bail on this case he assaulted other female victims," District Attorney Thomas Quinn said.
"He needs to be kept off the streets to protect female victims and society."
