The Telegram & Gazette reports:
A North Brookfield police officer was sentenced to 3 ½ years in jail Thursday after admitting in court that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl and sent an obscene photo to the victim’s cellphone.
Adam J. Kachadoorian, 44, pleaded guilty in Worcester Superior Court to charges of child rape, indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older, distribution of obscene matter and dissemination of matter harmful to a minor. A charge of child rape aggravated by age difference was dismissed as part of a plea agreement in the case.
As recommended by Special Prosecutor Michael V. Caplette and Officer Kachadoorian’s lawyer, Timothy M. Burke, Judge James R. Lemire sentenced him to 2 ½ years in the House of Correction on the indecent assault and battery charge and to a consecutive sentence of 2 ½ years in the House of Correction, with one year to be served, on the distribution and dissemination charges.
The balance of the latter sentence was suspended for 5 years with probation.
Conditions of probation imposed by Judge Lemire included sex-offender registration, a sex-offender evaluation and any related counseling deemed appropriate and GPS monitoring. Officer Kachadoorian was further ordered to have no contact with the victim.
Mr. Caplette also asked that the officer be required to pay restitution as a condition of probation for out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the victim and her family in connection with the case. A hearing to determine the amount of restitution to be paid was scheduled for Oct. 21.
