UPDATE: Scarborough Back In Jail - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

UPDATE: Scarborough Back In Jail

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - A Delmar teenager accused of raping another student at a local high school, is back behind bars.

Seventeen-year-old Jocori Scarborough is being held at the Wicomico Detention Center for the third time in just two weeks. A motion to revoke Scarborough's bond was filed -- State's Attorney Matt Maciarello arguing that this is a public safety issue and that Scarborough is a danger to society.

The judge apparently was not aware of the firearm violation against Scarborough when the initial bond was set last week. Judge Daniel Mumford stated that if he had known there was a handgun violation involved, he wouldn't have issued the bond in the first place. Therefore, he ruled in favor of the State and ordered Scarborough to be held without bond.

Tuesday's hearing was initially set for a peace order hearing that was filed against Scarborough last week. That peace order was dismissed because the initial bond carried a condition that would require Scarborough to stay away from the victim.

47 ABC spoke to the victim's mother who says her daughter is currently in therapy and seeing a psychiatrist.     

"Anger. Rage. That's all I can feel right now. I will say she will not go back to Parkside, to her culinary arts program which she loves very dearly. So, to whoever saying that she's lying, I am her mother and I believe what she told me. So y'all don't matter. They were just friends --acquaintances in school," she said.

Scarborough's family was also in court, but emotions were high and they declined to speak with us.

Scarborough will be back in court this Thursday, May 15 for a preliminary hearing on the rape charges. He is accused of raping a 15-year-old girl in a hallway of Parkside High School on May 5th, while classes were in session. He was arrested on May 6th and charged with rape, kidnapping, and molestation. During the arrest, Police reportedly found a firearm in Scarborough's Delmar home, leading to a second arrest on May 8th, on a possession of a firearm by a minor charge.
