Swampscott Man Pleads Guilty to Child Rape

Robert Kincaid, 40, pled guilty to four counts of rape of a child and three counts of providing alcohol to minors in Salem Superior Court this afternoon.  Judge John T. Lu sentenced Kincaid to 6 to 7 years in state prison.  When Kincaid completes his jail sentence, Judge Lu ordered 5 years of probation during which he must complete a sex offender treatment program, have no unsupervised contact with children under 14 years old, stay away from and have no contact with the victims, and complete a substance abuse evaluation.

Kincaid admitted to raping two 14-year-old girls and providing alcohol to those two girls and another girl over a period of 8 months in 2009 and 2010 at his home at 55 Berkshire Street in Swampscott.

Assistant District Attorney Michael Sheehan praised the work of the Swampscott Police Department, particularly Detectives Ted Delano and Tim Cassidy and Essex District Attorney’s Office victim witness advocate Theresa Gay.  He also commended the victims for their bravery in coming forward.  One of the victims provided a victim impact statement in court.

Kincaid was represented by Rebecca Whitehill.
