Deportations likely after dropped Md. high school rape case

WASHINGTON — The two teenagers who were recently cleared in a highly publicized rape case centering on Maryland’s Rockville High School are now fighting to stay in the United States and against newly announced child pornography charges.

On Friday, Montgomery County prosecutors dropped first-degree rape and first-degree sex offense charges against Henry Sanchez Milian, 18, and Jose Montano, 17, who was charged as an adult.

State’s Attorney John McCarthy said an intensive investigation had cast doubt on the 14-year-old victim’s initial report that she had been forced into a boys’ bathroom and raped repeatedly.

Attorneys for Sanchez Milian and Montano had argued the events in the high school bathroom were consensual.

In dropping the rape charges, McCarthy announced Milian and Montano would be charged with possession of child pornography, but would not take questions on his charging decision.

Not a lawyer but an educated guess.

Problems arose in the he said-she said aspects of the initial charges leading to the dismissal of the charges.

But both of the illegal perps must have had images on their phones and/or computers of the girl. Since she was underage it's a slam dunk in comparison for the sex predator charges.

If convicted, they'll be jailed or deported, or both.
