The last of the five Juanita High School football players charged with second-degree attempted rape pleaded guilty to third degree assault Feb. 1. The court sentenced him to 12 months of probation, 40 hours of community service. Unlike the other four defendants, he was also required to undergo sex offense treatment.
All five of the former JHS football players were initially charged with second degree attempted rape for trying to sodomize a special-needs student on Oct. 22, 2014.
All five of the students were given emergency expulsions from JHS following their arrest in October 2014 after they assaulted a senior special needs student in the boys locker room.
