A Butler man pleaded guilty Friday in three cases, including sexually assaulting two teenage girls, and attempting to injure a police officer with a vehicle.

Lee J. Rapsinski, 21, pleaded guilty to felony statutory sexual assault, interference with custody of children, corruption of minors, misdemeanor tampering with evidence and two counts of simple assault before Judge William Shaffer.

The plea agreements call for a total sentence of 3 to 6 years in state prison, followed by 1 year of probation. He will also be ordered to pay restitution and fines, as well as to have no contact with the victims in the cases.

Rapsinski will also be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years following his release from prison.

He continues to be held on a combined $150,000 bail pending sentencing.

The full story about these cases will appear in Sunday's Butler Eagle.
