Patrick Doyle, 33, pleaded not guilty in Taunton District Court to three counts of aggravated sexual assault, according to CBS Boston. He also pleaded not guilty to charges of enticing a child and distributing obscene matter, according to The Sun Chronicle
CBS Boston reported:
Prosecutors said the situation began when Doyle sent lewd pictures of himself to three different teenagers.
"Doyle was sexting to three girls, and then zeroed in on one," said prosecutor Alex Grimes.
Prosecutors say Doyle brought that 14-year-old girl to his home in Seekonk, and had sex with her on at least three occasions. Doyle's defense attorney said in court that the accuser is a "troubled youth" and has problems with the truth.
Bail was set at $100,000.
