Third teen in sex case goes to trial

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        LEBANON — The trial of a third Mason boy in the alleged sexual assault of three female classmates began Wednesday in Warren County Juvenile Court.

        The 14-year-old is charged with gross sexual imposition and sexual battery, both felonies. He also is being tried on a misdemeanor of contributing to the de linquency of a minor. The trial is expected to last two days.

        Last week, two of the teen's friends, who also are 14, pleaded guilty to scaled-back charges in the case. They will be sentenced next week.

        The boys were arrested shortly after the March 11 incident, which occurred at the Mason home of one of the girls while her mother was shopping. The boys were at the residence earlier, and returned after the girl's mother left, authorities said.

        Prosecutors said the girls were intoxicated at the time.

        Police began investigating after the incident was reported to an assistant principal at Mason Middle School, where the six teens were in the eighth grade.
