WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A jury has convicted a teenager in
the brutal gang rape of a mother and the beating of her young son.

Jakaris Taylor, 17, faced multiples charges, including rape,
kidnapping and assault.

A West Palm Beach jury deliberated for about five hours on
Friday before convicting Taylor on all 13 counts against him.

Two others charged in the case were convicted on most of the
same counts last month. Another defendant pleaded guilty and
testified against the others. All the suspects were teens at the
time of the 2007 attack, but were charged as adults. They face life
in prison.

Authorities say the teens, along with up to six others,
repeatedly raped and sodomized the now 37-year-old woman, beat her
son, then forced her into sex acts with the boy.
