Judge sends teen's locker-room rape case to juvenile court

A judge has ruled that a 15-year-old accused of instigating the rape of fellow members of his Maryland high school football team will be tried as a juvenile

NBC Washington reported Thursday that the teen is one of five boys charged with rape last fall. He is also the last of four teens whose case has been moved from adult court to juvenile court.

Prosecutors said the 15-year-old instigated the attack. But the juvenile's attorney said the judge did the right thing by sending the case to juvenile court. He said his client couldn't control his impulses due to severe and untreated attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
