Teens plead guilty to sex assault, still attending school

Posted: Updated:
COMMERCE, Ga. -

Several local teens who have admitted to sexually assaulting a 13-year-old student are still attending class.

Authorities say there were six young men involved in this case. One is being charged as a juvenile, another is facing a charge of reckless conduct. Four others are facing time for sexual assault, but a judge decided they can wait until graduation to begin their time in jail.

According to court documents, four men pled guilty to various sex crimes stemming from the assault of an underage girl in December 2012

The Jackson County District Attorney's office says it's not uncommon for the carrying out of sentences to be delayed if there's a compelling reason – in this case to finish high school.
