The charges against 17-year old Jocori Scarborough have been reduced in the alleged rape of a fellow female 15 year old student at Parkside High School.
He now faces second degree rape, false imprisonment and second degree assault as well as possession of a fire arm by a minor among other charges.
The first degree charges of rape, assault and kidnapping have been dropped.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Wicomico County State’s Attorney Matt Maciarello said those counts were dropped after reviewing the case.
The assault allegedly occurred in the hallway of Parkside High School earlier this month.
