Kenneth Arroyo, 41, of Chicopee, was sentenced to 12 to 13 years in prison after being convicted of two counts each of aggravated rape of a child, indecent assault and battery over 14, and indecent assault and battery under 14, the Hampden District Attorney said. 

A jury convicted Arroyo on April 9, and he was sentenced on Tuesday, April 23. 

Arroyo was accused of sexually abusing two children he knew who were between the ages of 10 and 15 years old at the time of the assaults, the prosecutor said. 

Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni thanked the law enforcement agencies who helped secure a conviction in the case. 

Acts of violence on children will be met with our most diligent efforts and the full force of the law. We will do all that we can within the law to protect this community’s children and punish those who seek to hurt them. I thank the Chicopee Police Department, in particular Detective Matthew Costa, and retired Springfield Police Detective Eugene Dean, along with Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Vasiliades and the members of my Special Victims Unit for their skillful work and steadfast effort to secure justice and protect the vulnerable.
