ELLICOTT CITY-- Attorneys representing three teen-agers charged with raping a 15-year-old girl in a Mount Hebron High School bathroom are hopeful that they will be released today from the Howard County Detention Center, possibly with little or no bond.

At a hearing Friday, District Judge Sue-Ellen Hantman denied bail for the three teen-agers, and they have been held at the Howard County Detention Center.

The three suspects -- Demitris R. Myrick, 18, Christopher Berry, 16, and Roderick D. Rudolph, 15 -- were charged as adults with rape, sexual offense, and conspiracy to commit a sexual offense. They reside in Ellicott City.
