Not guilty plea to rape on Wenatchee football bus

WENATCHEE — The 14-year-old Wenatchee High School student accused of raping three other students on a football team bus pleaded not guilty Thursday.

Police say the boy penetrated three other boys with his finger Sept. 6 on the bus ride back from a freshman football game in Spokane. The boy’s parents and their attorney, Brandon Redal, say the incident was horseplay and not criminal.

The Wenatchee World reports a trial would be heard by a Chelan County Superior Court judge. If convicted of second-degree rape the teen could face a year or more in detention.

The boy has been held since his Sept. 10 arrest in the Chelan County Juvenile Center with bail set at $50,000.
