THREE CHARGED IN HIGH SCHOOL RAPE (Girl, 15, Attacked by Classmates in Locked Room, Cops Say)
Durelle White, 18, and two 17-year-old students at Central High School are charged with taking a 15-year-old girl in to a room at the school Friday afternoon and raping her. She had left her classroom and was headed to the restroom around 2:30 p.m. when she ran into the three teens in the hallway saying they wanted to show her something elsewhere in the school and asked her to come along. She went with them to a locked room adjacent to the auditorium and one of the students had a key to the room and unlocked the door. One teen raped her and another forced her to perform oral sex on him while the third acted as a lookout. White is charged as an adult with first degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping. The two other students, who were not identified because of their ages, are charged as juveniles, although prosecutors are seeking to have all three tried as adults. White is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail and faces a maximum of 30 year in prison if convicted on the criminal sexual conduct charge and the two 17 year olds are in juvenile detention.
