YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — A twisted child rapist was sentenced to 27 years in prison for impregnating a pair of 14-year-old twins and their 12-year-old sister.
Arnold Perry, 34, had been a friend of the girls’ family and would periodically stay at their home when he had nowhere else to go, prosecutors said.
One of the twins had an abortion after her pregnancy was discovered, but the other two victims ended up having their babies because they were too far along when it was discovered they were pregnant, prosecutors said.
“These girls will suffer the rest of their lives because of this,” Assistant Prosecutor Jennifer McLaughlin said, according to the Youngstown Vindicator.
Perry pleaded guilty in November to two counts of first-degree felony rape and a third-degree felony count of sexual battery for the attacks, which took place in 2015 and 2016. He had faced 25 years in jail, but the judge gave him two years above the recommended sentence.
Prosecutors say Perry had been convicted of similar crimes as a juvenile.
