The article reports:
“Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy told a judge Friday that after an investigation, authorities are dropping rape and sex offense counts against 17-year-old Jose Montano, who was charged as an adult,” the Daily Mail reported. “He and 18-year-old Henry Sanchez, both of who were in the U.S. illegally, were charged in the alleged assault of the girl at Rockville High School in March.”
McCarthy also said his office was dropping charges against Sanchez, for the same reason — no evidence.
His statement, to reporters, was blunt: “The facts in this case do not support the original charges filed,” he said, the news outlet reported.
There is, however, some good news here. The article reports that both suspects still face charges tied to possession and distribution of child pornography.
The boys’ defense lawyer claimed that the incident was nothing more than consensual sex. I tend to wonder.
