News sources have confirmed that a teenager that was recently arrested after being linked to several rape cases has finally entered his plea in court. The defendant, an 18 year old by the name of DeJuan Donaldson, pleaded guilty to several charges including: aggravated assault,
kidnapping, sexual conduct with a minor,
sexual assault, and
armed robbery. In total, he is facing 16 counts.
Back in early May, Phoenix officers arrested Donaldson at a grocery store because they believed he had sexually assaulted 3 girls who ranged from the ages of 10 to 17. The store where he was arrested is not far from his home and is directly across the street from an abandoned house where officers say the rapes occurred. Through DNA testing, police were able to pin Donaldson as their suspect.
