A teenager accused of raping a 12-year-old girl last summer in a Woodlawn skating rink has pleaded guilty to a second-degree sex offense.

Kadeem R. Santiful, 18, faces a maximum of 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in August, but Baltimore County Assistant State's Attorney Stephanie Picard Porter said Tuesday she would ask for a term of seven to 13 years, the range recommended in sentencing guidelines.

Two others are accused of taking part in the assault. Tracey W. Hankins, 16, is scheduled to be tried on May 17, while the trial of the eldest of the three, Davon Perry, 25, is to begin on Aug. 16.

The two teens were charged as adults, and all three faced counts of first-degree rape, false imprisonment, committing unnatural or perverted acts and 26 other counts in connection with the Aug. 14, 2010, incident at Skateworks, which has since closed.

The girl told police that the trio had taken turns holding her down and raping her in a room used to store party supplies, and that they had forced her to perform sex acts on each of them.
