    Police: Barre Man Lured Girls to Tent, Gave Them Alcohol

    A Massachusetts man is facing charges for allegedly luring two girls to a tent in the woods, plying them with alcohol, and discussing sex acts.

    The Telegram & Gazette reports that 46-year-old William Ahearn, of Barre, was held on $50,000 bail after pleading not guilty Monday to charges including indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or younger, enticing a child under 16, and procuring liquor for a person under 21.

    Prosecutors say Ahearn was charged after the mother of one teen found messages of a sexual nature from him on her daughter's cellphone Saturday.

    Police found the tent about 100 yards from a camper in which Ahearn lived.
