A 16-year-old boy pleaded guilty as an adult in Pierce County Superior Court this afternoon to raping and robbing a Lakewood bikini barista last year.

Kyntrel T. Jackson was convicted of first-degree rape, two counts of first-degree robbery and one count of first-degree theft. He was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.

Prosecutors contended he and two other men committed a series of robberies in the Lakewood area in late September. Three of the robberies targeted bikini barista establishments. The fourth was of a citizen.

In one of the robberies, Jackson admitted forcing the barista, at gunpoint, to perform a sex act, court documents show.

Co-defendants Armuelle Danisel, 18, and Christopher Henson, 19, previously pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and other charges and were each sentenced to three years, five months in prison.

    Perfect example of how the media can take control of minds that don’t have nothing better to do than pass judgement. Well society jokes on you here you have a young “BOY” that has been in the Foster system that the state allowed abuse to go on for years and no one did anything to help these kids that we’re forced to go there and endure rape,abuse,neglect,etc… and This is a Foster home that the state is paying to hurt our children. And when the family of Kyntrel we’re finally able to get him within their care they tried to get him help time after time. Now here you have owners of these half naked young women working in their “FINE” establishments and don’t do a damn thing to protect these women that are basically selling a sexual fantasy for a cup of decaf. I feel sorry for the young lady that this happened to but she chose to work there and flaunt her self for tips and get repeat customers. All for someone who was not even concerned enough to keep the employees protected. Kyntrel didn’t have a choice in the foster home he was sent to by the State of Washington until the courts FINALLY took him out of there. The government failed Him and Her because they should never allow such shops to open up without weighing the pros and cons. Now we have a young boy that needed help and didn’t Get it and you think Prison is going to help him come on People. Young lady I pray that you’re heart heals and remain strong and do not blame yourself. Do not become a part of the darkness shine you’re light on someone who is facing the same struggles you are. For I am also a survivor of Rape.
