A 19-year-old Moreno Valley man pleaded not guilty today to all charges related to the gang rape of an 11-year-old girl in a park bathroom last month.

Michael Devon Bobby Sykes sat in the jury box of a Riverside courtroom wearing a red jail uniform as his attorney entered the plea and denied the six felonies and special allegations. His mother sat in the audience, but declined to comment.

Sykes is charged with rape of a child, rape in concert of a child, sodomy by force and violence, oral copulation on a child, kidnapping for rape and committing the crimes to benefit a gang.

If convicted on all charges, Sykes could face life in prison with the possibility of parole.

Sykes was the only adult charged in the March 10 gang rape at Victoriano Park in southeastern Moreno Valley. Police said the 11-year-old girl was lured by an older girl to the park at twilight, where Sykes and six other boys were waiting.

Of the juveniles, prosecutors are seeking to try four of the boys as adults. Dominique Dupree Hull, 15, Phillip Alexander Butler, 16, and two brothers, Javonte Marquise Dixon and Johntae Maurice Dixon, both 17, are all charged as juveniles with rape, sodomy, oral copulation and lewd acts with a child under 14, all to benefit the gang.

Prosecutors said today that they are seeking to prosecute Sykes and the teens together. A report is due April 25, when a hearing will be set to determine if the boys are fit for adult court.

Sykes' deputy public defender, Melissa Hale, said the case is still under investigation to determine any facts and what role Sykes played in the rape. Unlike the juveniles, Sykes charges are related to an age difference and rape of a minor, Hale said.

"He's in the most difficult position in the case, because he's the only adult involved," Hale said.

The judge ordered Sykes bail to remain fixed at $1 million. He is set to appear for a scheduling hearing May 13.

What's the point of giving him bail at all?

Let's suppose his Mommy wins the lotto and springs him. He has no business being on the outside. Why even allow the charade of a potential bail?

"He's in the most difficult person in the case, because he's the only adult involved," Hale said.

Either Sykes' public defender is incompetent (likely), or the PE writer is incompetent (also likely).

Yeah, that would be poorly written if it were not a quote.

I think she meant he is in the most difficult predicament because he is the only adult.

He has to fight the charges though, any plea they offer is a death sentence for him in jail or after jail.

You guys are wrong. Again, blacks don't "check their own" like Whites, Southsiders, and Piasas do.. and you can't just stick someone of another race because you feel like it or a race riot will kick off.

Mandatory shower every day ?( or when avail) Nope, not for the blacks. Shoes in the dayroom, not for the blacks, Can't share opened food or meds ...nope. Play basket ball, handball, etc.with other races.... nope not a rule for the blacks but be white or brown and expect to get stabbed for playing anything with a black. Child molesters and rapist.......? "Ain't nuthin but a thing" for the mandatory "green light" That is why it is hard to get along with them in or outside of prison.... no rules.

That is one of the first things you learn when you hit reception.

Yeah, and if he's in that red uniform he's obviously not in a place where he could get checked anyway.

Prepare for the Armageddon you scripted. The rise of the LIONS is soon to come and it will start with your victoriano wanna be thugs there won't be bloodshed, just the vicious beatings of your members. Don't we won't go anywhere, everything will be self-defense on our part. We know that your young just like us, but unlike you we can control our temper and remain cool through the harshes of insult bombardments. Don't worry if you got boys, you might have more than us, but we are more efficient. Ever heard of the SAS and the PLA's Guangzhou and Chengdu units? As we been doing research on all our targets here, I suggest you get to know those three units and learn how they operate for thats how we do it, but with a little style of our own.

It really doesn't matter what color their skin is, all 7 of the boys should be tried as adults and for the girl she should go down with them for the max sentence. And when they get to prison they dont deserve to be PC'd up not even for a day. Opps o well!!
