A 16-year-old Jackson teen is charged as an adult in a statutory rape case we first told you about last week.

Police say Demerrest Lewis, II was arrested in connection with an alleged sexual assault involving a 12-year-old at Whitten Middle School.

Jackson police tell us the incident happened inside the school near the band room. The 16 year old Lewis is being held in the Raymond Detention Center.

Police could not confirm if Lewis was a student at Whitten. At this time they are not releasing his photo or any additional information.
