Sentenced

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man who sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl has been sentenced to four years in prison.

The Republican reports 19-year-old Jeffrey Ramos, of Chicopee, was sentenced on Tuesday. Ramos pleaded guilty to multiple charges including child rape and distributing obscene matter to a minor.

Prosecutors say Ramos met the victim online and began assaulting the girl when they started dating.

Investigators say an investigation began in 2016 when friends of the victim reported nude pictures Ramos had sent to them. Authorities say Ramos had also sent photos to his friends.

An attorney for Ramos says her client has cognitive issues that could explain while he felt comfortable in the company of a 13-year-old girl.

Ramos must register as a sex offender.
