Innocent until proven guilty!!! Not that I am defending this young man, however he is a juvenile and his name along with his accusers should have not been published!

He is currently charged as an adult so for this matter the law sees him as an adult, at least for now. I agree with you, he has not been found guilty. The charges are strictly accusations and a verdict will be determined in court. Nothing in the article states he is guilty, just that he has been accused of these crimes. Patch usually does not publish the names of sexual assault victims. The girl referred to in the story is not published here.
