A 21-year-old student at Rhode Island College will head to prison for 11½ to 23 months for a felony corruption of minors offense related to a relationship he had with a 14-year-old Montgomery Township girl in 2012, according to The Intelligencer.
Thomas R. Sullivan, of North Providence, RI, begins his sentence May 2, which also comes with a five-year probation after parole and $1,500 in fines, according to the report.
Police said Sullivan had a nearly eight-month relationship with the girl; having only met him once, the girl considered Sullivan her boyfriend. Her parents reported the relationship to police in December 2012.
They Skyped and texted sexually explicit photos and messages, police said. At a sleepover, the victim escaped and met up with Sullivan in a backseat for some "inappropriate touching."
