Teen Sex Offender Charged with Assault of Developmentally Disabled Girl in High School Bathroom

Jose R. Reyes (King County Sheriff's Office)
SEATTLE (CBS/AP) Jose R. Reyes, an 18-year-old convicted sex offender enrolled in a Seattle high school, has been charged with raping a developmentally disabled 14-year-old girl on campus.

Prosecutors charged Reyes with third-degree rape in the May 18 incident in the Roosevelt High School girls' bathroom.

Court papers allege Reyes sexually touched the 14-year-old disabled girl despite her requests that he stop.

He reportedly had dated the girl for several weeks.

Investigators say Reyes became a registered sex offender at age 15 after pleading guilty to a charge of indecent liberties with force in 2007 in King County.

According to KOMONews, the conviction stemmed from a series of incidents where Reyes lured potential victims with Yu-Gi-Oh children's playing cards. Investigators told KOMO that all the girls were between 5- to 11-years-old.

Reyes was arrested and booked into jail on May 20 and is being held on $100,000 bail.
