Multiple People Involved in Edgewood Stabbing:…

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 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.

, 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.

I'm sorry to disappoint your perverted mind, but my father is deceased, and no, he didn't molest anyone. Now, off to bed Junior.

Your psyche had to be evaluated? That must have been one great party. Now shut your little eyelids and count some sheep if you have to, little man.
Hazzard Native August 23, 2012 at 05:15 AM
Dislike the entire county, nice. You would welcome him into your home anytime, even if he is convicted, or found delinquent of rape? That's a whole lot of faith you have there. Yes, not allowed upstairs, because we all know that bad things only happen upstairs. How naive to think that your children will never drink. I hope you are right, but I think you are quite jaded. Blame the parents? Blame them for what? You report they were both drinking. How is it okay to assume they were both drinking, since you have pointed out that there hasn't been a trial? Double standard.

Most of these comments should be deleted!

lol she was 15 and i was 17. nice try.
Milt Roberts August 23, 2012 at 04:21 PM
so you were either moved up a grade or she was held back. Either way, a senior guy dating a freshman girl just isnt right. Either desperate or looking for one thing only.
BelAir Resident August 23, 2012 at 07:42 PM
I agree that these comments are way out of line, completely inappropriate & offensive. I do have to chuckle at the irony that here Hazzard Native is so quick to accept everything written about someone else on the ever so sacred Patch and now someone is writing terrible things about him/her in a public forum and there is nothing he/she can do about it. I guess he/she has to hope we don't all believe the terrible things that are being written about him/her? Judge not, that ye be not judged !!!!
CB9678 August 23, 2012 at 07:45 PM
I was 17 my whole senior year and did not skip a grade. I turned 18 in late June!
CB9678 August 23, 2012 at 07:49 PM
I chuckle because Tyler is over 18, if we believe he is at HCC. Yet clearly he is very immature. I was lead to believe Kyle Reddish is very mature by his fans. If we believe he is two immature because he is 16 to be in the adult system does Tyler get to be in the adult system?
Hazzard Native August 23, 2012 at 09:33 PM
@ BelAir Resident, I am not bothered by Tyler, rather by the belief that it is okay to purport that both parties were drunk, and that the parents and the county and the state prosecutor's office are somehow responsible for the alleged rape or the alleged situation in which the alleged rape took place, yet nobody on here can admit that this may have really happened. Many on here have jumped on me for my opinion that I do not want the accused near my children, they state that he is innocent because he hasn't had a trial yet. The Joppatowne Cannibal hasn't had a trial yet; will you invite him into your home too? Many on here say that I do not know what happened and should not make any assumptions at all because there hasn't been a trial, yet some of those same people report that both parties were drunk - hypocrites. The most vile and foul mannered person on this thread could not possibly offend me with some keystrokes; anyone that has to use the amount of vulgarity that Tyler has, in order to get his point across, is very much in need of some life skills. I actually support Tyler Bronco in his right to defend Kyle Reddish by such vile means, as his speech is protected under the same Constitutional Amendment as mine and yours. GO TYLER, spout off some more vulgarity in your attempt to convince the world that having sex with inebriated underage girls is okay, so long as they keep the story to themselves. GO, GO, GO, the stage is all yours!
Susan August 24, 2012 at 02:47 AM
Tyler, that is an absolutely vile comment. You have no idea who she is or what her past is. And if she had been raped, why do you think that's something to look DOWN on?
Susan August 24, 2012 at 02:51 AM
Being a rape victim /=/ being drunk. Nor is being drunk an excuse.
Kirsten Dize August 24, 2012 at 03:35 AM
It is actually not illegal to publish the name of a juvenile, charged as an adult or not, however it is not typically Patch policy to publish the names of juveniles. This, however, is a different situation because he was charged as an adult at the outset.
Kirsten Dize August 24, 2012 at 03:40 AM
A number of comments have been deleted for violations of Patch terms of use and user "Harry P. Ness" has been suspended.

Guess we should charge the Perry Hall kid as a Juvinielle because his undeveloped brain doesn't know taking a shootgun to school is wrong?
Eileen Siple August 29, 2012 at 12:38 AM
CB9678, given your literacy skills (or lack thereof), it might not be a bad idea for you to go back to school. I think it would be worth the risk.
CB9678 August 29, 2012 at 05:53 PM
So can I assume your position is unchanged? He is a 15 year old and this belongs in Juvinielle court? Or have you had an epiphany? BTW your use of parenthesis is not correct!
Eileen Siple August 30, 2012 at 02:14 AM
Your assumption, unlike your spelling, would be correct. I believe that juvenile (that is the correct spelling) courts are for juveniles. And thank you for your notation regarding my use of parentheses (that is the correct spelling of the plural form of parenthesis. That is my opinion. You obviously disagree. I'm fine with that. In this fine land of ours, we are all entitled to our opinions. I'll sign my name to my opinion - will you?
Dave September 01, 2012 at 01:50 AM
Does anyone know if Kyle is back at Patterson Mill? He loved that school. Also, checking out the MD case search, looks like he was caught driving without a seat belt. Wasn't there, but really. Put on your seat belt. You got your case moved to juvie court. His parents must be a wreck, I know I would be.
CB9678 September 02, 2012 at 01:00 AM
Grammar is the arguement of the weak minded. Also you forgot to end or close your last parenthisis! I would suggest you stop critiqueing other peoples spelling and actually debate facts. I find it appalling that you believe rapist, mass murders and attempted murders who are 16 & 17 are not capable of realizing right and wrong and therefore get off with a slap on the wrist! Of course I recognize your right to have a differing opinion. I was simply trying to see how far you think this Juvinielle crusade should go!
CB9678 September 02, 2012 at 01:02 AM
Dave not sure about this specific case but if HCPS is following their own policy he would be at alt ed until this is resolved assuming he would not be found delinquient. His prescence is likely to cause a substantial disruption, cause obvious trama for his victim who has a right to go to school without that trama and poses a potential risk if he is a sex offender.
Eileen Siple September 02, 2012 at 03:47 AM
I find it appalling that you do not think others have a right to their opinions. And I have no idea where you got the notion that I think 16 and 17 year-olds don't know right from wrong. I never said anything of the kind, and, in fact, I absolutely believe most do know right from wrong. I have simply stated that the Supreme Court has acknowledged that there are basic differences in a teen's brain, as opposed to an adult's brain, making them unable to fully appreciate the whole situation and the ramifications of their actions, and additionally making it more difficult to control impulses. Teenagers act rashly. That's why they are not allowed to legally drink or vote. Further, teenagers, solely because of their young ages, are not allowed to serve on juries, meaning that, in an adult court, a juvenile cannot be tried by a jury of his peers, which is his constitutional right. The juvenile justice system came about because of these facts. And to be clear, I have cited facts all along, unlike you, who have simply spouted your opinions. You are, however, entitled to your opinion, just as I am entitled to my opinion that juvenile courts are for juveniles. And also to be clear, I never once said a thing about your grammar, but your spelling is atrocious. And one more thing, I am finished debating my facts with your opinions, unless you are actually confident enough about your opinions to sign your name to them. If you feel so strongly about your opinions, then own them.
CB9678 September 05, 2012 at 01:46 PM
I find it appalling you have a reading comprehension issue. If you read the post to which you replied you would clearly see that I said "Of course I recognize your right to have a differing opinion. I was simply trying to see how far you think this Juvinielle crusade should go!" It seems you missed that. I may think your opinion is crap but it is your opinion. I agree that the brain of a human does gradually grow and evolve but I DISAGREE. with your assertion that at 16 your brain is not capable of knowing and controlling actions like raping or killing. You point out as an example age requirements for voting, drinking and liscencing. Notice you can get a liscence to drive at 16. This means that it is recognized you are responsible enough to drive. If you get a DUI at 16 you go to adult court if you run over a kid you go to adult court. If you can not keep from shooting people or raping them you have no buisness driving a car! Secondly you talk about jury of peers. You use this as if age is a qualifier for a peer jury. It is not a garuntee you will be tried by a jury of only people your age, gender, race etc. All it means according to the supreme court, is that the jury is a cross section of the community.
Eileen Siple September 10, 2012 at 09:09 PM
As I have already said, I will respond to your inane comments when you feel strongly enough about your convictions to sign your name to them. Until that time, it is apparent that you are merely attempting to get a reaction. I will, however, point out that your definition of the word "peer" is incorrect; in fact, it means a person who is of equal standing. A juvenile is not of equal standing with adults.
Dave October 14, 2012 at 12:14 AM
I will be the first to admit. I defended this guy saying he needed a trail. Then today, I run a case trial on him and see a drunk driving charge, with many others. Still not sure what happened, but this "kid" needs a lot of help
