OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A teenager accused of sexually assaulting two classmates at a suburban Kansas City high school has pleaded guilty to amended charges in a case that touched off a metro-wide protest.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2gZlzBP ) reports that the 15-year-old Leawood boy admitted Thursday in juvenile court to two felony aggravated battery counts.

The teen initially was charged in September with three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with two underage students at Shawnee Mission East High School in Prairie Village. He also had been charged with exposing himself in April 2015 to a girl at another school.

Under the plea agreement, he faces 10 days in juvenile detention and two years of probation when he’s sentenced in April.

Hundreds of students wore black earlier this year as part of the protest.
