Attorney for accused Rockville High School rapist says sex was consensual

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Montgomery County Schools said they received numerous threats, including calls by people someone saying they would, "Shoot all immigrants."

The threats came just days after police say a 14 year old girl was raped by two male students at Rockville High School.

According to court documents, 18 year old Henry Sanchez Milian and 17 year old Jose Montano forced the girl into a boys bathroom where they took turns raping her.

However, Thursday, Sanchez Milian's attorney told DCW50 that is not what happened.

"People jump to conclusions understandably, but the evidence in this case will more than likely show that this is something that was planned, not forcible and was consensual," said defense attorney Andrew Jezic.

A claim that proved hard for some parents to grasp.

"Oh no, I don't even think that a 14-year-old girl should...you know, that is not even to be thought of at that age," expressed Barbara Brown, a Rockville High School parent.

DCW50 asked Attorney Jezic, about the legal issues surrounding this case with a 14 year old girl and an 18 year old man.

"In the state of Maryland, you need more than a 4 year difference in age in order to make it a statuary rape case,"Jezic explained.

Jezic said his client will be entering a plea of not guilty.

Because the two suspects are undocumented, what police say happened at Rockville High has become the center of national immigration conversations and has raised questions about school safety and policies that allow 18 year olds to be in class with teenagers.
