Teens Charged as Adults for Rape

By Law Offices of Howard J. Wise & Associates  Mar. 26, 2012 1:43p

A third teenaged minor was recently charged in a case involving the rape of an 18-year-old woman on New Year’s Eve. The incident occurred outside near a Chicago theater and allegedly involved three teen males, two 16-year-olds and a 15-year-old. Prosecutors on the case say that the three encountered the woman when she became separated from her friends. She was drunk and apparently in and out of consciousness. It is alleged that the three teens took turns carrying her to a remote location where there was less foot and car traffic. Apparently one passer-by had already confronted the group when they were carrying the girl near a busy intersection. Prosecutors argue that the most recently charged teen was the one that suggested they take the girl to a different location. The teens allegedly dumped the woman in a bush when they were done with her. Have you been charged with a sex crime in the Chicago area?
