A Scituate man is in serious trouble after he allegedly had sex with multiple teenagers he met on Facebook.

Daniel Joseph Reilly, 24, of 22 Clifton Ave., Scituate, was arraigned twice in the last month on a total of six counts of statutory rape of a child and two counts each of rape of a child with force, as well as providing obscene material to a minor and enticing a child under 16, the Patriot Ledger reports.

Redacted police reports filed in Hingham District Court say that Reilly “friended” two girls, ages 14 and 15, on the social media site during the spring, and met them multiple times over the summer, according to the Ledger.

The two girls reported the incidents to police  last month. They said they accepted his Facebook friend requests because they had mutual friends in common. But soon, Sawyer was persistently pursuing the young girls, asking that they hang out and even sending pictures of his genitals to them.

Sawyer will return to court on Oct. 1.
