Teen Rape Case Moved to Juvenile Court, Closed to Public
Kyle Reddish, who was charged with rape in September 2011, appeared in court Monday.
A case involving an Abingdon teen—charged with raping a fellow Patterson Mill High School student last fall—was moved to juvenile court during a hearing Monday morning.
The move effectively closes the case's outcome to the public, preventing media and community members from following further developments in the case.
Kyle Burnett Reddish, 17, of the 100 block of Kensington Parkway, was charged as an adult with two counts of second-degree rape and six related charges in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a girl who was 14 years old at the time.
Reddish had been facing a set of juvenile charges, in addition to the adult charges. Circuit Court Judge Maurice Baldwin granted a reverse waiver, moving the adult case to juvenile court and closing it to the public.
Juvenile court cases and outcomes are closed to the public. A motion to transfer the juvenile case to adult criminal court was denied.
