SEATTLE A convicted sex offender is accused of raping a special education student at Seattle's Roosevelt High School. KING 5 has learned some staff new a sex offender was at the school, but parents and students did not.

Prosecutors say 18-year-old Jose Reyes convinced a 14-year-old freshman to go into a girls bathroom at Roosevelt to make out. But, he then forced himself on the student. Other students believe he was in some sort of relationship with the girl.

Few at Roosevelt knew about Reyes' disturbing past:

In January of 2007, police say Reyes lured a 10-year-old-girl into a public library parking garage and asked her to take off her pants.

In April of 2007, he was charged with trying to lure an 11-year-old girl at a greenwood park.

And in May 2007, he tried the same thing with a five-year-old girl, asking her to sit on his lap in exchange for trading cards.

When Reyes started school this year, certain teachers, staff and security were told that he is a Level 2 sex offender. State law dictates that no one else is required to be notified.
Many parents say that's ridiculous.

"When it comes to child safety I think parents have a right to know," said one parent.

"Based on recent information, a rape on campus we should definitely know. If teachers and administrators know, I should definitely know," said another.

The Seattle School District says while Roosevelt was notified of Reyes' sex offender status, the report did not give details about his past and that report never made it from police to the school district itself.

Reyes is charged with third degree rape and is held on $100,000 bail.

Jose Reyes, 18, Charged With Raping Special Ed Student at Roosevelt HighBy Caleb Hannan, Wed., Jun. 2 2010 @ 8:07AM

When Jose Reyes began dating a 14-year-old special ed student, it probably should have raised a few red flags at Roosevelt High.

Reyes, 18, had already been convicted of child molestation and three counts of child luring in 2008 after convincing three young girls all under the age of 11 to sit on his lap in exchange for yo-yos and trading cards. During one of the incidents, Reyes allegedly took the girl to a parking garage, spanked her and asked her to take her pants off.

According to court records, Reyes had also been banned from local libraries as a 13-year-old after getting caught masturbating while looking at porn.

When Reyes enrolled at Roosevelt, the King County Sheriff's Office sent the school a letter informing them that he was a sex offender. But word never reached the district. So according to a schools' spokesperson, a behavioral plan meant to keep a closer watch on Reyes never materialized.

Reyes has been charged with third-degree rape. As for the possible oversight that allowed him to slip back into class unnoticed, the schools' spokesperson told KOMO that, "It's very clear that we will need to have a conversation with the other agencies involved to ensure there's absolute clarity about the flow of information."

From SeattleCrime:

Court documents say on May 18th, Reyes and the girl skipped class and met outside the school, "where they kissed." Reyes "kept asking [the girl] to go in one of the school bathrooms so they could do more touching and finally she consented," records say.

Reyes then allegedly accompanied the girl into a stall in a women's bathroom inside the school and digitally penetrated her.

Court documents say the girl asked Reyes to stop when he began hurting her, but he ignored her pleas and "kept penetrating her against her wishes" for about five minutes.

"He only stopped when someone entered the bathroom," court records say. "Once the bathroom was clear they both left and went back to class."

The girl told a school counselor about the incident two days later, and police arrested Reyes.

Teen sex offender pleads not guilty to rape charge

Posted by Jennifer Sullivan

Jose Reyes, the former 18-year-old Roosevelt High School student charged with raping a 14-year-old developmentally delayed freshman in May pleaded not guilty Monday to third-degree rape.

Reyes, who is being held on $100,000 bail, briefly appeared in King County Superior Court during his arraignment. He faces a sentence of 14 months if convicted.

According to Seattle police:On May 18, Reyes convinced the girl to skip class and go into a girl's restroom, where she was fondled, police say. The girl told Reyes to stop, which he only did when somebody else came into the restroom. On May 20, the girl told a school counselor what happened, police said. Reyes was then arrested.

Reyes, who lived with his family in Greenwood for years but recently moved to Kent, began acting out sexually as early as age 13, according to court papers.

In 2007, police investigated a series of incidents in which he lured elementary-age girls from public parks or the library by telling them he would give them his collectible Yu-Gi-Oh playing cards. He was convicted of indecent liberties with force and faced 65 weeks in custody but was, instead, accepted into a sex-offender treatment program. He went to treatment instead of serving time behind bars.

Reyes' probation in the indecent liberties case would have ended June 18, but because he is charged with a new offense he could be required to serve 65 weeks on the old charges, in addition to any new sentence.

Seattle School District spokeswoman Teresa Wippel said Reyes was expelled from Roosevelt High School after his arrest.
