Grand jury requested in Carmel case

April 27, 2010

A grand jury will decide whether charges will be filed in the high-profile Carmel High School sexual assault investigation involving high school basketball players. The Hamilton County prosecutor requested a grand jury to review the evidence against one or more Carmel players accused of hazing a student in the high school's locker room. Meanwhile, the Hendricks County prosecutor is reviewing whether charges should be filed in the case of a freshman Carmel player who claims he was sexually assaulted by senior members of the Carmel basketball team in the back of a bus while on the way home from a road game in January.
