Texas Men Face 1,300 Years In Prison Each For Allegedly Gang Raping Teen Girl
WACO, TX (CBS Houston) — On Wednesday, six men have been indicted by a McLennan County grand jury in the alleged gang rape of a 15-year-old girl.
With a total of 91 counts, the six men could be facing 1,300 years in prison, according to WacoTrib.com.
The six men indicted were between the ages of 18 and 20.
Devoric Javon Evans, 20; Lamont Tray Davis, 19; Day’tron Derrell Smith, 18; Da’Juan Oshea Degrate, 18; and Cory Darnell Hall, 18 were all indicted on 13 counts of first-degree felony aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony.
The sixth man, Douglas Demond Canada, 19, was indicted on 13 counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and three counts of sexual assault of a child.
Allegedly, the six men indicted worked “in concert” with each other after Canada and Degrate drove the young girl to a housein the 800 block of North Fourth Street following a plan to skip school that day.
The girl told police that the four other men were waiting at the house.
“She went with a couple of boys she thought she knew, and then a bad situation became much worse,” Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said upon arresting the six men.
The girl’s account of the situation started with her entering the bathroom with Degrate to have sex.
“I told him to stop, but he wouldn’t,” the victim told police. “Then he walked me out to the bedroom and the other boys were there. They all had sex with me one at a time.”
Following this, the victim reported the incident and was admitted to the hospital.
