WESTLAKE - A former Westlake student, facing assault charges, has been placed on home detention.

De’Andrew Smith was in juvenile court this morning on charges of rape and kidnapping. The charge stems from an April incident.

The judge placed him on home detention. Smith is only allowed to leave the house for medical appointments, church and for anything related to his adult case.

Court officials say Smith is no longer enrolled in Westlake High School and has a no contact order with both victims.

Smith is accused of assaulting a 17-year-old student in a restroom at the high school last Tuesday. The student was seriously injured after Smith is accused of slamming him to the floor.
