Rape suspect ordered to stay away from children

A Dorchester man was held on $10,000 cash bail yesterday and ordered to stay away from children after pleading not guilty to eight counts of rape of a child.

The charges involve a 13-year-old girl who prosecutors said was lured to his home for play dates with the suspect’s son. Between November and December, Edgar Soares, 33, “invited the victim over to play with his 8-year-old son. When she arrived, (Soares) would take her cell phone and sexually assault her,” said Jake Wark, spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley.

Prosecutors sought to hold Soares on $75,000 cash bail, Wark said.

A law enforcement source said Soares works for the Department of Correction. Soares’ attorney, Jonathan Scott Lauer, referred questions to DOC, which was not able to confirm his employment as of last night.
