Minnesota man sentenced to 45 years in prison for the rape of 4 girls between the ages of 6 and 14

Minnesota man, Matthew Rahn, has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for the rape of 4 girls between the ages of 6 and 14.

Rahn’s new charges stem from law enforcement’s further investigation into Rahn where police found photographs of a 10-year-old girl on his phone. Messages on his phone show Rahn bragging to another person about sexually abusing her.

Following that investigation, law enforcement found that he sexually abused a girl when she was between 12 and 14 years old and he sexually abused another girl starting when she was in first grade. He reportedly stopped assaulting the second juvenile by the time she entered fifth or sixth grade.

A 43-year-old Lake City man has entered into a plea agreement for two separate cases in which he was accused of sexually assaulting four different girls and possessing child sexual abuse material of children as young as toddlers.

Matthew Raymond Rahn pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, all felonies, during a hearing this week in Wabasha County District Court. He was initially facing about a dozen other felony charges related to the sexual abuse of children between 2014 and 2022. “This resolution ensures that a truly heinous predator is kept away from children and that his victims can heal in a community free of his shadow,” Lake City Police Chief Cory Kubista said in a statement about the case.

As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors insisted that the sentences run consecutively rather than concurrently, meaning he will have served 540 months in prison before his release.

Law enforcement also found that he sexually assaulted another 11-year-old girl between 2014 and 2016.

Throughout the abuse, Rahn was using the messaging application WhatsApp to talk to other people about the sexual assaults and exchange explicit images of minors, according to the criminal complaint.

He is scheduled to appear in court May 11, 2023.
