(Polk County, Iowa)  WHO-TV, Channel 13 is reporting one of four Johnston teens, accused of sexually assaulting a classmate is asking for a bond reduction.

Eighteen-year-old Morgan Hough is being held in the Polk County Jail on $60,000.  There will be a bond review hearing Thursday.

Hough, along with three other Johnston High School students, face 2nd degree sexual abuse, 1st degree robbery, and felony assault charges.

Seventeen-year-old Ritter Stahlbaum has posted bond, but a motion has been filed by the state for a hearing to impose conditions of his release. 

He is currently under no supervision. No date has been set yet for the hearing.

Fifteen-year-olds Kaden Dishman and Noah Lamar are being held in the juvenile court system, but their cases are likely to be waived to adult court because the offenses are forcible felonies.

Officials say the four assaulted another Johnston High School student at Morgan Hough’s home on September 8th. They were arrested on September 28th.
