A 36-year-old Dresden man pleaded guilty in Delaware on Nov. 3 to charges that he raped a 14-year-old runaway at a Delaware motel in 2015.
James I. Allen faces a maximum sentence of 100 years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of third-degree rape and one count of sexual exploitation of a child, according to a release from the Delaware Department of Justice.
Allen was arrested Feb. 1, 2015, after Delaware state troopers went to the Comfort Inn in Georgetown, Del., and found a girl who had been reported as a runaway.
The teen allegedly told police she met Allen on Facebook and had met him at the motel about a week earlier.
Allen also faces federal charges in the case. In October 2015 he was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of production of child pornography, coercion and enticement of a minor, receipt of child pornography, possession of child pornography, and transfer of obscene material to a minor.
He is scheduled for sentencing on the state charges in January in Sussex County Superior Court.
