Mark D. Rosenfield, 63, of Falmouth was convicted by a Barnstable Superior Court jury on Monday, September 13, on charges of rape and three counts of indecent assault and battery on an intellectually disabled person, according to the Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe.

The jury deliberated for approximately four hours after a four-day trial before returning its verdict, according to the press release from the DA's office.

Judge Mark C. Gildea sentenced Mr. Rosenfield to eight to 10 years in state prison at MCI-Cedar Junction on both the rape charge and one count of indecent assault and battery on an intellectually disabled person, the release said.

The charges stem from incidents that occurred between April 27 and April 28 in 2018 in Falmouth, the release said. Due to the nature of the charges, no further details are available.

Mr. Rosenfield was also placed on probation concurrent with his incarceration on one of the remaining indecent assault and battery charges, and two additional years of probation after he is released on the third count of indecent assault and battery, according to the release.

The case was investigated by the Falmouth Police Department, Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Massachusetts State Police Crime Laboratory and was prosecuted by Cape and Islands Assistant District Attorney Michael A. Patterson.
