SALISBURY, Md. - A James M. Bennett High School student accused of trying to rape another student in a school stairwell has had some of the charges against him dismissed.

Wicomico County Deputy State's Attorney Ella Disharoon tells WBOC a district court judge did not find probable cause for attempted first-degree rape or attempted first-degree sex offense, so those charges are dismissed.

The student is currently charged as a juvenile on the other charges, which the Wicomico Bureau of Investigations said include attempted second-degree rape, third degree sex offense, sexual contact without consent, first and second degree assault, unlawfully detaining and attempted second degree sex offense.

According to the Bureau of Investigations, the incident happened back on April 6, when investigators said the male student led the girl to the back of the Salisbury high school and tried to kiss her and take her clothes off.

Disharoon said the state has filed a motion requesting that the court waive the student to adult court, a decision that will ultimately be left to the court.
