Pawtucket Man Pleads Guilty to Multiple Counts of Child Molestation

Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin announced that Kevin Allard, Sr., (DOB: 6/23/74),with a last known address of 408 Armistice Boulevard, Pawtucket, yesterday pleaded guilty to six counts of first degree child molestation and one count of second degree child molestation.

Superior Court Justice Robert D. Krause sentenced Allard to 25 years, with 12 to serve and the remainder suspended with probation on each count; sentences to run concurrent. Pursuant to the sentence, Allard is subject to lifetime sex offender community registration and notification, including lifetime GPS monitoring, and must undergo sex offender counseling and treatment.

Had the case proceeded to trial, the State was prepared to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that on multiple dates between January 1, 2012 and March 31, 2012, Allard molested a 12-year-old female. The victim shared the abuse with a friend, who in turn alerted a school teacher. Upon informing the parents of the victim, the Pawtucket Police were immediately contacted. The police arrested and charged Allard. While questioning the defendant, he confessed to the molestation.

"Abuse of a child, be it either physical or sexual abuse, at the hands of an adult can inflict scars on victims that are felt long after wounds have healed. As a community, we have taken a strong stand against child abusers, and enacted strict laws to ensure lengthy sentences and post-release monitoring. Megan's Law, which requires lifetime GPS monitoring, is one tool we have to protect our children from predators," said Attorney General Kilmartin.

Pawtucket Police Detective Donti Rosciti led the investigation and Special Assistant Attorney General Ania Zielinski prosecuted the case on behalf of the Office of Attorney General.
