Jules High girl admits to consensual sex

The 15-year-old Jules High School girl who accused her schoolmates of gang-raping her, has reportedly said the sex was consensual.

The girl made her second brief appearance in the magistrate’s court this morning and admitted, for the first time, that she had consensual sex with the two boys aged 14 and 16, Independent Online reported.

The three were yesterday charged with statutory rape by the national director of public prosecutions, Menzi Simelane.

During their first appearance in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court yesterday, the boys admitted to their role in the consensual sex and the girl maintained that she had been raped.

This morning during her second appearance, the girl changed her mind and agreed that the sex was consensual, according to Independent Online.

The two boys were arrested on November 8 after allegedly raping the girl at her school in Jeppestown on November 4.

They allegedly filmed the incident on their cellphones, which was later shown to prosecutors as evidence.

Her case and the boys’ case have been postponed until December 1 for a final order, Independent Online said.

All three have been placed on a diversion programme.
