PHOENIX — A not guilty plea has been entered for a teenage boy accused in
the sexual assaults of two Scottsdale women last month.
Maricopa County prosecutors said a judge entered the plea on behalf of the
16-year-old defendant Wednesday.
The Chaparral High School student was indicted on 12 counts in the case. That
included five sexual assault counts, two attempted sexual assault counts, two
kidnapping counts, two burglary counts and one count of attempted voyeurism.
The indictment accuses the juvenile of breaking into the first-floor
apartments of two Scottsdale women who lived alone near his home and sexually
assaulted them on Oct. 18 and Oct. 24.
Prosecutors said the teen has been charged as an adult in the case and is being
held without bond.
