The AP reports that two Montclair High School varsity football players were charged with rape today. The boys, identified as 15 and 16 in this report, were also charged with kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault and conspiracy in the Sunday night incident. They were expected to turn themselves in today.
The victim is a 15-year-old classmate at Montclair High School. None of the names were released.
The story lead at least one local newscast at 5 pm, and if the 1989 Glen Ridge rape case is any guide, a local TV onslaught is just beginning.

  1. I happened to be at the gas station across the street from the police station around 5.15pm – camera crews from every local station were there. You’re right, it was a feeding frenzy. Very sad situation.

  2. Were Montclair’s schools even mentioned in NJ Monthly? Oh no, that’s right; they only covered the top 75 in the state!
