WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 14-year-old Waukesha boy accused of sexually assaulting an 87-year-old woman will be tried in adult court. 

Back in November, the boy allegedly held a knife to the woman's neck, drove off in her car, and forced her to perform sex acts. 

Khalil Perry was led into the courtroom in handcuffs Thursday, April 28; they were taken off once he sat next to his attorney. 

CBS 58 is now naming Perry since he'll be tried as an adult. 

Perry did not speak and did not react as the judge recounted what she described as a "violent, aggressive, and premeditated" act. 

Audio and video recording was not permitted in the courtroom. 

Perry is charged with sexual assault, armed robbery with use of force, armed carjacking, and kidnapping. 

The hearing was to determine if the case would be tried in juvenile court or adult court. 

A previous psychological evaluation recommended Perry be tried in juvenile court, but the judge said she doesn't believe that evaluation is valid because the doctor was not provided all relevant information. 

The judge also considered a letter from the victim in which she wrote her life is essentially shattered and she'll live in fear forever. For those reasons, the judge ruled Perry will be tried in adult court. 

Usually, a juvenile that's moved to adult court can petition to be sent back to juvenile court, but at the end of Thursday's hearing there was some disagreement as to whether such an appeal is allowed in this case. 

Perry will continue to be held at a Washington County juvenile facility. He'll make his first intake appearance in Waukesha criminal court at 1 p.m.
