    A 17-year-old boy accused of raping a 16-year-old girl in a Northeast D.C. school pleaded guilty Wednesday.

    The incident took place in a computer lab at Friendship Public Charter School about 3 p.m. Tuesday. The girl told a friend and then police, who arrested the boy soon after the incident.

    He pleaded guilty to first-degree sex assault and two counts of third-degree sex offense. He will be detained until a sentencing hearing next month.

    The teen could remain incarcerated until he turns 21.
