A former Massachusetts deputy police chief has been indicted Monday on child rape charges stemming from repeated alleged assaults against a 15-year-old victim while he was assigned as a school resource officer, prosecutors say.

John Porter, the 54-year-old former Hopkinton Deputy Chief of Police, is now facing three counts of Rape of a Child after being indicted by a grand jury, according to Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan.

“The incidents allegedly occurred during 2004 and 2005 while the victim was a 15-year-old student,” the DA’s office said Monday, describing how Porter had worked in the Town of Hopkinton school system. “During that time the defendant allegedly assaulted the victim on multiple occasions off school property.”

The Hopkinton Police Department, which is located between Worcester and Boston, declined comment to Fox News Digital when pressed about the situation.

A few days ago, Porter was let go of his position in the department, the attorney’s office said. No arraignment date has been set yet.
