An Ohio man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison after impregnating 14-year-old twins and their 12-year-old sister while he was living in their home with them, PEOPLE confirms.
Last November, Arnold Perry, 34, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree felony rape and a third-degree felony count of sexual battery, Mahoning County Common Pleas Court records show.
On Thursday, Judge Maureen Sweeney sentenced Perry to 27 years in prison – two years more than the sentence prosecutors recommended, The Vindicator reports.
Perry was friends with the victims’ mother, who let him stay with her and her family at their Youngstown home when he had nowhere to live, assistant prosecutor Jennifer McLaughlin told the judge, per the Associated Press.
