Mario Long, 17, of Saint Louis has been formally charged with 1st Degree Statutory Rape and Attempted Forcible Rape of a 11-year old female. Reportedly, Long stated to police that he would have had sex with the minor had he not been interrupted during the incident that occurred on October 27, 2013. Allegedly, Long exposed himself to the victim and then he forced the child onto a bed and held her down against her will. There is at least one other female victim, 13-years old who reported to the police that Long also raped her in the past.

If you a concerned citizen worried that Long's confession was inadmissible because he too is a minor and should have had a parent present during questioning-- while Mario Long is a minor under the age of 18; in the state of Missouri a person 17-years or older is considered an adult which means that Long's confession was lawfully obtained. In the state of Illinois, 18+ is legal age to be charged with a crime as an adult.
