    Cohen pleaded guilty to charges including rape and abuse of a child aggravated by an age difference and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14.

    The Berkshire District Attorney's office says Cohen admitted to sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl between January 1992 and May 1994 in North Adams.

    Prosecutors say he also admitted to raping a girl between September 2012 and January 2014 in New Marlborough. The girl was 15 when the assaults started.
