KENNEWICK, Wash. - A teenager has pleaded not guilty to rape and robbery.
A Benton County judge Friday signed the order to prosecute Rodolfo Garcia, 16, as an adult.
Prosecutors say Garcia, who was 15 at the time, attacked a young woman in her Finley home, raped her at knife point, and then robbed her of $40.
Superior Court Judge Robert Swisher set bail at $100,000 and scheduled the trial for June.
The judge is allowing Garcia to remain in the juvenile detention facility.
