Three teenage boys are scheduled to appear before the Family Court in Kingstown today (Wednesday) charged with unlawful sexual intercourse with a female schoolmate.
The boys, aged 15, 16, and 17 are accused of raping the 12-year-old girl at their school last Wednesday, Jan. 31.
Reports are that the youths mobbed the girl as she left the restroom at the school, while classes were in session.
The savagery of the violation led to the girl collapsing after returning to her class.
She is said to have revealed the crime after having been taken to receive medical attention.
If convicted, the youths face a maximum penalty of life in prison.
