Norwell, Mass. Man Gets 5 Years for Raping Teen Girls

The suspect first spoke to his first victim after he posed as a 16-year-old boy on the mobile app Snapchat

A Massachusetts man who raped two 14-year-old girls has been sentenced to five years in prison.

The Enterprise reports that Luke Callahan was sentenced five years in prison after pleading guilty to 10 counts of rape of a child, one count of an unnatural act with a child and one count of assault and battery.

Norwell police began investigating Callahan last year after one of the victims contacted authorities. Police say the victim met Callahan through Snapchat where he posed as a 16-year-old boy. Investigators say Callahan had a relationship with the victim before dating her 14-year-old friend.

Authorities say Callahan later drove the second victim to fight the first victim.

Callahan will have to register as a sex offender and undergo treatment after he's released from prison.
