A former manager at a Popeye's restaurant in Bensalem could be facing a long prison term.

51-year-old Eduardo Tomasek of Bensalem pleaded no contest Tuesday before Bucks County Court Judge Albert Cepparulo as part of a plea deal.

Tomasek faces more than 30 criminal charges involving inappropriate touching of several teenage female employees.

Cepparulo immediately revoked bail on Tomasek and ordered a Megan's Law evaluation.

Police say for a year, Tomasek preyed on one young female employee after another.

A total of seven 15 to 16-year-old girls say the man who hired them, assaulted and fondled them several times while they were working.

One teenager came forward and police say a two month investigation led to two others.

Four more girls then spoke up saying the manager would get them into a corner or backroom to grope them.

Sentencing for Tomasek will occur after the evaluation.
