Judge Releases the Four Damascus High School Students on Bond After Details of 'Brooming' Ra
A Montgomery County Circuit Judge ordered the four, 15-year-old Damascus football players, charged with the rape and attempted rape of their teammates be released on bond on Monday after prosecutors outlined the violent and shocking details of the attacks in court.
Deputy State’s Attorney Peter Feeney told District Court Judge John Moffett the details of the attack that prosecutors say took place before the Damascus junior varsity football team was to have the final practice of the season on Oct. 31. Prosecutors say the four boys, who are being charged as adults, and fifth boy still charged but as a juvenile attacked four freshmen in the locker room at Damascus High School, beating and stomping the victims, and anally raping one victim with a wooden broomstick, and attempting to do the same to three others.
Feeney said the four teens have each been charged with one count of First Degree Rape, three counts Attempted First Degree Rape, and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Rape.
