Sus­pect in school rape case pleads to child porn charge

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

One of two His­panic teens who en­tered the coun­try il­le­gally and were later charged with rap­ing a 14-year-old girl in a re­stroom at their Mont­gomery County high school en­tered a plea on child pornog­ra­phy charges Fri­day.

The 17-year-old Rockville boy pleaded “in­volve­ment,” a ju­ve­nile court term, to pos­sess­ing a porno­graphic im­age of the al­leged vic­tim that she sent him, The Wash­ing­ton Post re­ported. Sen­tenc­ing is set for Aug. 16. The As­so­ci­ated Press does not gen­er­ally name ju­ve­nile of­fend­ers.

The teen, along with 18-year-old Henry Sanchez Mil­ian, was charged as an adult in the al­leged March rape.

Prose­cu­tors dropped the rape charges after ev­i­dence failed to sup­port the ac­cuser’s claims, but they brought child pornog­ra­phy charges against both teens. De­fense at­tor­neys claimed the sex was con­sen­sual.

Mr. Sanchez Mil­ian’s trial on child porn charges is sched­uled for Oct. 30.
