Pittsfield man pleads guilty to child rape charges
PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Pittsfield man has pleaded guilty to video recording himself sexually abusing young girls.
The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1qI2G01 ) reports that Jason Gendron pleaded guilty Thursday in Berkshire Superior Court to 10 charges, including multiple counts of child rape aggravated by an age difference and indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.
Prosecutors say the 35-year-old Gendron recorded himself raping a 3-year-old child and forcing a 7-year-old girl into a sex act on one occasion each, and recording himself raping a 13-year-old child multiple times.
Gendron previously pleaded guilty to federal sexual exploitation of children and child pornography charges.
Prosecutors and Gendron’s attorney agreed to a 25- to 30-year prison sentence on the state charges to be served concurrently with the federal sentence, expected to be up to 50 years.
