— Rape charges against a pair of teens accused of assaulting a fellow Chapel Hill High School student have been dismissed.

Each of the 15-year-olds pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of misdemeanor aggravated sexual battery.

The charges stemmed from an incident back in February at the school.

The teens could each face up to 14 24-hour periods of detention. They will be sentenced next month.
