A 38-year-old man will spend the next seven to 15 years in state prison for the rape of a 13-year-old girl in Falls Township last year. 

Shane Ferguson, of Morrisville, pleaded guilty in September to rape by forcible compulsion, aggravated indecent assault, aggravated indecent assault of a person less than 16, indecent assault, indecent assault of a person less than 16 and endangering the welfare of a child. 

In her victim impact statement on Tuesday, the victim’s mother told Common Pleas Judge Gary B. Gilman that the attack was a “horrific nightmare” that caused “fear, sheer panic and anxiety” to her daughter. 

“A resounding message must be sent to sexual predators,” she said.
