FULL TITLE: Three Chicago teens accused of raping a 12-year-old girl and putting the video on Facebook charged as adults
CBS) CHICAGO -Three teenagers accused of raping a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint and posting the video of the assault on Facebook were charged with sex assault as adults on Friday, said the Chicago Tribune.
According to the paper, the three boys were held in custody in lieu of $900,000 bail.
The Tribune reported prosecutors say that on December 15, 2012, the girl went to 16-year-old Scandale Fritz's Chicago home to speak with him, and that when she arrived at the home, 16-year-old Justin Applewhite and 15-year-old Kenneth Brown were with Fritz. Brown had a gun in his pocket, prosecutors allege.
Brown allegedly forced the girl to go downstairs with him where he raped and sodomized her after she repeatedly refused his demands for sex, reported the Tribune. Then, authorities say, Fritz and Applewhite went downstairs and also sexually assaulted her.

“..look ma,I’m a star”
More people need shooting.
NObama’s boys... Chicago style.
Wonder what she went to talk to him about? I bet there is another version of that story but none of it should have happened if their parents had raised them better.
If they’re “Eric Holder’s people” their punishment will likely be light
Gee, she willing went to visit him and there’s only a 4 year age difference. /s
His mama named him appropriately.
Are you blaming the child?
That was my first thought, too. Kids don't visit, they text.
Imagine how this story could have been improved if the event had happened after June 9th, with gun liberty in Illinois.
“Three gang member teenagers accused of attempting to rape a 12-year-old girl were buried on Friday, said the Chicago Tribune. The NAACP complained that efforts should have been made to arrest them instead of shooting them.”
I must be getting progressively racist in my old age. I can no longer see the words youth or teen in a crime story without automatically assuming amish
Society has such high standards
Yes, often we can assume Amish or immigrant
Seems to me there should also be some charges for publishing/distributing a sex tape with a minor.
> Are you blaming the child?
No, but It’s a valid question though.
Any relation to Marshall Applewhite?
From another article:
“Fritz videotaped the sex acts, including Brown holding a gun during sex, and all three of the boys shouting gang slogans, prosecutors said. All three of the boys are visible in the video, with Fritz entering the frame when he turns the camera toward himself.
The day after the assaults, the girl told someone about the attacks, and a police report was made and the girl was treated and examined at a hospital. On Dec. 17, the video was posted on Brown’s Facebook page, and then on all three boys’ Facebook pages, prosecutors said.
Fritz admitted to investigators he made the tape, prosecutors said.
Fritz and Brown, also of the 400 block of West 60th Place, are co-defendants in a previous, unrelated robbery and aggravated battery case, according to prosecutors. Brown also is on 18 months probation in a Nov. 28, 2012, unlawful use of a weapon case, prosecutors said. Brown is due back in court on that case May 22.”
