SPRINGBORO, Ohio – A 14-year-old Ohio boy is being charged with rape after he and his 12-year-old girlfriend were caught allegedly having sex at school.
Both the boy and girl say the sex was consensual.
However, the Warren County prosecutor said the boy was charged with rape because the girl is under the age of 12, which is Ohio law.
Residents say it’s difficult to understand how this happened.
“When we were in school the teachers monitored the halls, they would come in the bathrooms, they knew where we were,” said Springboro resident Cindy Marconet. “They’re too young. When I was 12 years old I didn’t know about things that deep.”
“I know I’m older and from a different generation, but my gosh,” said resident Norma Alexander, who agrees with Marconet. “You just think your kids are raised with better morals than to go to school and have sex.”
