Former student pleads guilty to Md. dorm room attack

A former student wrestler at the Maryland School for the Deaf in Frederick has pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in an alleged sexual attack in a dormitory room.

Twenty-year-old Tyler Dilks, of Whiteford, entered the plea Wednesday in district court in Frederick. Prosecutors dropped sex offense and conspiracy charges.

The court suspended a three-year prison term and a $1,000 fine in favor of two years of supervised probation and 250 hours of community service. Dilks must get a mental-health evaluation and avoid the school.

He and three juveniles were charged in November with holding a 16-year-old male victim down while sodomizing him with objects including a soda bottle and a small bottle of hand sanitizer.

Why were the "sex" and conspiracy charges dropped? He and his cohorts planed and conducted a sexual assault on a 16 year old and he gets a fine?!! and a mental health evaluation?!! There is no 'cure' for rapists! This is the wrong message to send. This turd needs to do some jail time.
