BOSTON (AP) – A Boston man has pleaded guilty to raping three teenage girls at gunpoint during a crime spree in Revere in 2006.

Eric Morale pleaded guilty Friday in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston to an 18-count indictment, including five counts each of rape, kidnapping and armed robbery.

Morale was sentenced to 15 to 20 years in prison, followed by five years of probation. That sentence will begin after Morale finishes serving a four- to five-year sentence for violating his probation on a drunken driving charge.

Prosecutors said Morale and an unidentified accomplice kidnapped a 17-year-old girl at gunpoint, raped her and threatened to kill her if she did not lead them to money. The girl brought them to a Revere house, where the men physically assaulted a mother and raped two teenage girls.
