16-year-old Arraigned for Unlawful Sexual Intercourse, Attacker Charged with Wounding

This afternoon, a sixteen year old minor was arraigned for Unlawful Sexual Intercourse at the Family Court. The minor was allegedly stabbed on Monday when the father caught him sexually assaulting his thirteen year old daughter. After receiving treatment, the underage boy was escorted to court for arraignment. No plea was taken from him, but he was asked if he understood the charge of unlawful sexual intercourse. He was then handed into the custody of a relative.  The minor told the court, that he knew the girl, who he was having a relationship with, was a minor under law. Earlier in the morning, the father of the girl was charged for Wounding before Magistrate Deborah Rogers. He pleaded not guilty and was offered bail in the sum of two thousand dollars plus one surety of the same amount which he was able to meet.  The father’s next court date is set for October fifth, 2015. In a report to the police, the sixteen year old boy complained that he was punched on the face and stabbed him with a pair of pliers and that he fell unconscious when the older man began to choke him.  According to the boy, when he woke up, he was covered in blood and that’s when he saw the girl’s father hitting her. He said he was attacked again by the father.  Fearing for his life, he ran outside the house.
