Devontea Wright, a 16-year-old arrested May 9 on felony rape charges, faces additional charges following a grand jury hearing last week. Wright pleaded not guilty to seven felony sex charges, including Rape I and Rape II, at an arraignment Monday.
During the arraignment, Deputy District Attorney Richard Bunney requested bail for Wright be increased to $500,000. Bunney cited the additional charges, as well as Wright's criminal history. According to Bunney, Wright's record includes seven guilty adjudications on felony and misdemeanor charges in the last 17 months.
Judge Daniel Hill ruled that bail would remain at $100,000.
A pre-trial hearing for Wright has been scheduled for May 31.
