WOBURN (CBS) — A Marlboro man has been found guilty of aggravated rape of a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan.
Daniel Correia, 39, of Marlboro, was found guilty by a Middlesex Superior Court jury in Woburn.
On Friday, Middlesex Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins sentenced Correia to 10-12 years in prison to be followed by five years of probation, Ryan said in a prepared statement on Saturday. During the probation period, Correia will be subject to GPS monitoring for the first three years, and must not have any contact with witnesses in the case or any unsupervised contact with anyone under 16. He also must complete sex offender evaluation and treatment as well as comply with the regulations of the Sex Offender Registry Board.
“This defendant gave a 14-year-old alcohol and then took advantage of him sexually,” Ryan said. “His actions were purposeful and deliberate and evidenced a total disregard for a vulnerable young person. It can be extremely difficult to disclose abuse and I commend the victim’s willingness to tell authorities and a jury what happened.”
Sometime in late 2010 or early 2011, Correia and the victim became acquainted through a mutual friend, Ryan said. On the night of Feb. 17, 2011, the victim and some of his friends were at Correia’s apartment in Marlboro. While there, Correia gave the victim vodka. Over the course of the evening, Correia complimented the victim and told him that he was “cute.” Later, the two went into Correia’s bathroom, where they engaged in sexual activity, the DA said.
