Rockport man gets 10 years on child rape charges
SALEM, Mass.—A Rockport man accused of raping a young girl multiple times inside the men's bathroom of a Gloucester store where he worked has pleaded guilty.
Ronald Terelak pleaded guilty to four counts of forcible rape of a child under the age of 16 in Salem Superior Court last month and was sentenced to 10 years in state prison.
Prosecutors say the 34-year-old Terelak also pleaded guilty to four charges of indecent assault on a child under the age of 14.
Authorities say the assaults on the girl took place over the course of four years between May 2001 and April 2005.
