A source familiar with the case told WRCB-TV the oldest defendant, who is 18, will stay in custody until November 21. He has not been released from custody since his arrest in December.

The teen was convicted of aggravated rape and aggravated assault. He was 17 at the time of the incident.

Two other students, each convicted of aggravated assault, received an additional 60 days in a juvenile detention center.

Neither side would comment on what happened inside the courtroom.
