A 13-year-old boy was arrested today and has been charged with third-degree rape. The rape is said to have happened on the bus ride home at about 3:15 p.m. on March 11th. A 14-year-old girl is the alleged victim.
No one reported the rape while it was happening. It is said to have happened in the back of the bus, and the bus driver did not notice anything. Kingston Middle School officials said that some students reported it a day after it happened.
If convicted, the boy will face up to 30 days in juvenile hall, 150 hours of community service, 12 months of community supervision, and a fine of $500. The boy and another 13-year-old boy, who may be involved, were expelled from school.
