Six Texas men are facing more than 1,600 years in prison each after being accused of gang raping a 15-year-old high school student after she skipped class earlier this year.
A grand jury in Waco, Texas, on Wednesday indicted Devoric Javon Evans, 20; Lamont Tray Davis, 19; Day’tron Derrell Smith, 18; Da’Juan Oshea Degrate, 18; and Cory Darnell Hall, 18; and Douglas Demond Canada, 19.
Police say Canada and Degrate convinced the teen to cut class at Waco High School, where all three are students on April 23.
The Waco Tribune-Herald reports that when the girl arrived at the home where they were planning to ‘hang out,’ four other men were there.
‘She went with a couple of boys she thought she knew, and then a bad situation became much worse,’ Waco police Sergeant Patrick Swanton told the newspaper.
When the girl arrived, the men allegedly asked her if she was ‘freaky.’
Cananda began by raping the girl in the bathroom, according to authorities.
Hall told police he heard the girl telling Canada to stop and he refused.
According to court, documents, she told police: ‘I told him to stop, but he wouldn’t.
