Police Log: Juvenile charged as adult in school rape case

The 17-year-old charged with raping a Parkside High School student May 5 remains free on bail.

The Wicomico County state’s attorney’s office had no court date set as of Tuesday.

Jocori Marece Scarborough, 17, of Delmar, Md., was charged with first-degree rape, second-degree rape, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, second-degree assault, false imprisonment and school molestation, according to a press release issued by the Wicomico County Bureau of Investigations.

He was originally held without bail, but when bond was set at $100,000, he posted bond and was released at 10:30 p.m. on May 6, according to the press release.

The press release states on May 5, a juvenile victim reported being raped at the school.

She told a detective that at approximately 8 a.m., she was walking with the suspect when he began making sexual advances. She said he grabbed her by the arm and forced her to an area of the school not covered by video surveillance.

The victim said she repeatedly refused, but the suspect continued to hold her forcefully, grabbed her by the hips and dragged her down a hall.

Once in the area outside the video surveillance, the victim said, the suspect pulled the victim’s skirt up and removed her underwear.

The victim said she continued to refuse and tried to keep her clothing on, but the suspect was able to force sexual intercourse.

Police said the incident occurred when students were supposed to be in class.
