Cape Cod Man Who Preyed on Teens Sentenced

A Massachusetts man who coerced multiple teenage girls to perform sexual acts and raped one of them while she was unconscious has been sentenced to 15 years in state prison.

The Cape Cod Times reports that 30-year-old Joel Morris was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in Barnstable Superior Court to multiple charges including indecent assault and battery on a child over 14; possession of child pornography; aggravated rape of a child under 16; and paying for sexual conduct with a child under 18. He also got 19 years of probation.

The charges relate to three victims, but police say others came forward with similar allegations.

Police say Morris approached the girls on social media, and in one case said he was a photographer looking for models.
