This is no youthful indiscretion, and could impact a pair of soon-to-be sex offenders for the rest of their lives.

A pair of teenagers could be sentence to juvenile detention for up to eight years after admitting this week to sexually assaulting two 12-year old girls in March, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The boys, ages 13 and 14, will be sentenced on August 5, according to prosecutors. Charges are still pending against two other boys.

The boys were students at Kennedy Middle School in Redwood City, who were on a field trip March 20 to Stulsaft Park in the Peninsula city, according to reports. At some point, the boys managed to take two seventh-grade girls to a secluded area where they were "assault for five to eight minutes," according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, who called the case "unprecedented in three decades as a prosecutor."

The assaults were not reported until June.
