Teen Makes Juvenile Court Appearance on Child Rape Charges

A 16 year old boy charged with raping two young children made a recent appearance in Juvenile Court.

The teen is accused of molesting a 5 year old child on May 19 and a 4 year old on July 19 in restroom facilities at the fairgrounds in Alexandria.

The boy is now in state custody based on separate offenses against him in Putnam County and is undergoing a mental evaluation. His next juvenile court hearing is October 25 at which time the judge will learn the results of the mental evaluation and possibly whether the state will see to have him tried as an adult in the case.

The case was investigated by the Alexandria Police Department and DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department.
