District Attorney Greg Winters says he plans to try all seven teenagers accused of raping a Northeast High School student last month as adults.
That includes two 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old charged in the alleged Jan. 19 rape in a boys bathroom.
Last week, arrest warrants showed that these four were charged: Greg L.
Watkins, 17; Antonio Deaundry Jackson, 18; Jimmie Lee McKnight, 17, and
Ashley J. Clark, 17.
An incident report released by Bibb County schools Tuesday night said three more teens, who are juveniles, are also charged in the case.
Under state law, crime suspects under the age of 17 are generally tried in juvenile court and their names are not released to the public. However, prosecutors have the option of trying juveniles charged with certain serious crimes, like murder and rape, as adults.
