David Raszewski, the South River High School teen charged with raping a 7 year old girl in his neighborhood got a bit more bad news on Friday last week.  While police initially charged Raszewski with second-degree rape, a County Grand Jury, after hearing the evidence, amended the charges to include first-degree rape. According to the indictment, Raszewski molested the girl “in several ways”.

When Raszewski entered the Jennifer Road Detention Center on March 21, 2009, he was looking at a 20 year sentence. Now with a first-degree charge, he is looking at a life sentence.  Raszewski still remains in custody with a $2 million bond.

A trial date has not been set.
