NORWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – A teenage boy from Western Colorado has been given probation for sexually assaulting another boy on a school bus in April.
The students had come from Norwood to the Pepsi Center for the state wrestling tournament. Prosecutors say the victim was held down and violated on a bus parked outside the arena.
In a plea deal the older boy pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual contact without consent. Two other students were sentenced over the summer.
The victim’s family claims they’ve been punished for reporting the crime. His father is a school administrator and was placed on leave following the incident.
