Teens Granted Bond in Sex Battery Case Involving Braddock High Students

Two of the four teens charged in the sexual battery case involving students from Braddock Senior High School will be leaving jail after they were granted bond Tuesday.

A judge granted Julio Fernandez and Luis Rosello, both 19, $15,000 bond plus house arrest with a GPS monitor. A third teen charged in the case, 19-year-old Adrian Machin, is expected to be granted bond Wednesday.

According to the arrest report, the victim, a 21-year-old woman, was laying in bed incapacitated when she was assaulted by the fourth suspect, a 17-year-old minor, in a hotel room. Machin and Fernandez recorded the incident with their cell phones while Rosello watched, the report said. Machin and Rosello then assaulted the woman, the report said.

Sources told NBC 6 the woman had helped the teens get the hotel room and that the incident happened during a prom after-party last month. Three of the suspects attend Braddock and were supposed to graduate this year, while the other is a drop-out, sources said.

The teens have been ordered not to have any contact with the alleged victim or each other. The minor suspect will be tried in juvenile court.
