SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A Somali teenager living in Utah was sentenced for two counts of rape.

Mohammed Ali Mohammed pleaded guilty to raping two women on consecutive nights in August of 2011.

Police say the Ali Mohammed committed the rapes when he was only 14 years old.

Because he is a juvenile, Ali Mohammed will be held in a youth facility until he is 21 years old, at which time a judge will decide if he should serve more time as an adult.
