Norwell: Man Facing Statutory Rape Charges

A Norwell man is facing statutory rape charges.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office says that 20-year-old Luke Callahan was arraigned Friday in Hingham District Court on one count each of Statutory Rape and Enticement for Sex From a Child Under 16.

The Child Advocacy Center of the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office was contacted in late November about the rape of a juvenile female.

An investigation then determined that Callahan had been involved in an ongoing and sexually explicit conversation with the underage female victim online before they met in person.

The District Attorney’s Office says the victim further disclosed that Callahan
allegedly sexually assaulted her on one occasion in Norwell.

Norwell police arrested Callahan Thursday night.

Callahan pleaded not guilty and was held without bail pending the outcome of a dangerousness hearing, scheduled for Tuesday.

The District Attorney’s Office says the investigation is ongoing.
