Athol man found guilty of rape charges

GREENFIELD — An Athol man was found guilty of various charges of sexual abuse on Thursday in Franklin County Superior Court.

Following a lengthy seven-hour deliberation by the jury, Jeremy Currier, 31, of Athol, was found guilty on charges of aggravated rape, abuse of a child, and battery on a child under 14. Currier was first indicted on the charges by a grand jury on Dec. 18, 2015 in connection with incidents that occurred in Athol on Nov. 11, 2014.

He is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Michael Callan in Franklin Superior Court on Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 2 p.m.

“The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office acknowledges the strength, courage and resolve of the victim in this case to be able to come forward and tell her story,” Assistant Northwestern District Attorney Linda Pisano, who prosecuted the case, said. “May this trial bring her a feeling that some measure of justice was achieved.”
