Mowat Rape Case Closed

An investigation into sexual battery allegations at Mowat Middle School is over.

Lynn Haven police say the two students agreed to meet in a bathroom and have sex one day earlier this week.

Police say initially the 12-year-old girl involved in this case claimed she had been raped. After further investigation the girl's mother told police her daughter had made claims like this before.

Lynn Haven investigators have asked the state attorney’s office to charge both students with engaging in sexual activity. According to state law, minors are not allowed to have sex, even if it is consensual.

Mowat Middle School officials have suspended the boy. Police say the girl's family is moving her to another school.
