WASHINGTON (AP) — A 17-year-old student has pleaded guilty to raping a classmate inside a computer lab at Friendship Collegiate Academy in northwest Washington.
The Washington Post reports that the student pleaded guilty Wednesday to a juvenile charge of sexual assault. Prosecutors said the teen groped a 16-year-old classmate Tuesday as they waited to get keys to the lab, then turned off the lights, blocked the girl from leaving and raped her.
The paper was allowed to attend the juvenile proceeding on the condition neither the suspect nor the victim would be named. A judge ordered the teen to be held until he is sentenced April 4.
