Prosecutor to announce decision on Carmel High School inquiry

May 17, 2010

Four senior basketball players at Carmel High School could face misdemeanor battery charges for their roles in two alleged sexual assaults in January. Any official charges, as well as the names of those players involved, are expected to be announced during Hamilton County Prosecutor Sonia Leerkamp’s news conference this afternoon. The investigation began after three senior players were accused of sexually assaulting two freshmen on a team bus returning from a Jan. 22 game in Terre Haute. During that investigation, school administers learned of another incident involving a fourth senior in the high school locker room. The players were disciplined by the school after a tip from a parent. Fox59, which is airing the news conference live at 1 p.m. on Fox59.com, will have more at 4 p.m.
