A 17-year-old student will stand trial on accusations that he raped a 14-year-old girl in a Detroit-area hotel room after Melvindale High School’s homecoming dance.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Monday that Tra-von Hampton has been bound over to circuit court on a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Hampton is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 8.

Two 16-year-olds also face the same charge in the Oct. 3 incident. Their cases are being handled in juvenile court. Authorities say the girl had access to alcohol before she was assaulted

Hampton’s attorney Robert Mullen says he plans to put up a “vigorous defense” and evidence against his client “is questionable.”

Hampton is free on bond.
