According to Q13Fox in Seattle, Washington, five high school students were charged on February 6th, with attempted rape of a specials needs education student.
The incident was reported to have occurred in a locker room at Juanita High School in October of 2014.
Four of the boys were "emergency expelled," from school shortly after the incident. The male victim was a volunteer football team manager, and the accused were football players.
The King County Prosecutor's Office told Q13Fox the following:
Although the incident does not appear to have been sexually motivated, the charges reflect that the attack involved an attempted or threatened penetration with a broom handle while one student was restrained by several others.
The prosecutor's office also say that the teenagers – four are 15 years old, and one 14 – face commitment to the Department of Juvenile Rehabilitation, a possible sentence in a local detention center, and/or court ordered probation.
