Centre County Man Pleads Guilty to Rape, Sexual Assault of 6 Women

Kevin Mullen of Centre County has pleaded guilty to charges related to the rape and sexual assault of six women over a nine-year period.

“Kevin Mullen pleaded guilty to committing violent sexual crimes against multiple women, after luring them to his home under false pretenses. While there is no undoing the damage Mullen has caused, today’s guilty plea is a step toward justice for these women,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

From 2012 through March 2021, Mullen used social networking platforms to connect with his victims, advertising that he was looking for a “cleaner” or “someone to cuddle with”. Mullen would then invite the women to his home and use drugs, handcuffs, and other tactics to assault and rape them.

Mullen pleaded guilty to Rape, Criminal Attempt-Rape and Aggravated Indecent Assault. He will be sentenced at a later date.

This case is being prosecuted by Deputy Attorney General Kristyne Crist and Assistant Chief Deputy Attorney General Daniel Dye.
