Student Rape Allegation 'Unfounded'

Allegations made by a 14-year-old Dacula High School student regarding an alleged rape on Dec. 4 have been ruled "unfounded," but the investigation is ongoing according to Gwinnett County Police public information officer Cpl. Ed Ritter.

"The rape allegation has been [determined to be] unfounded," Ritter wrote in an email to Dacula Patch. "Charges may be pending for misdemeanor statutory rape. The investigation is not closed yet and is still being investigated."

The teen told police a male student at the school had raped her behind Dacula Family Sports. The teen said she fought her attacker, but was raped before she could escape.
