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.
