A 13-year-old East Toledo boy admitted to one count of rape in Lucas County Juvenile Court Tuesday morning. The second count of rape was dismissed.
The boy is charged with performing a sex act on his 3-year-old cousin while the offender was 12.
The maximum sentence could mean the boy is incarcerated in a juvenile facility until the age of 21.
Sitting next to his grandparents, the boy dressed in a forest green shirt and pants, listened as Judge Connie Zemmelman told him he would be released to his grandparents on house arrest.
The boy’s cousin is the only victim.
This is a developing story.
