Loudoun County student reaches plea deal in second sexual assault case

The 15-year-old high school student who was last month found guilty of raping a classmate in a school bathroom has pleaded no contest on charges of abduction and sexual battery in a second assault case. 

He reached a plea deal Monday in which he accepted the facts of the case but did not admit guilt.

The student was arrested in July and charged with forcibly sodomizing a female peer in May. The Loudoun County Public School system transferred the student to a separate high school as investigators processed initial DNA evidence, where the teenager again, allegedly, assaulted a female student on October 6 when he forced her into a classroom.

Late last month, the teen was found guilty of the July charges.
