Rape investigation at leake county high school

A teenager accused of rape at a school in Leake County will be tried as an adult, but not on an assault charge. Walnut Grove Police say a 16 year old was caught having sex with a 13-year-old female student in one of the restrooms at Leake County High School.

Chief Polk says notes had been passed between the two students.

Since Mississippi law states anyone under the age of 14 cannot consent to have sex, the 16-year-old is being charged with statutory rape.
The teenager could face a sentence of up to life in prison.
