Three jailed in connection with reported prom party rape
By The Associated Press
ELLIJAY, Ga. (AP) Authorities say three teens accused of sexually assaulting a girl at an after-prom party at a north Georgia cabin have been charged with aggravated sexual battery.
Gilmer County Sheriff Stacy Nicholson says Fields Chapman, Avery Johnson, and Andrew Haynes each 18 years old have been arrested in a reported attack on a girl during a party in early May at the Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay.
Authorities have said there was a large amount of alcohol at the party, and the men have also been charged with consumption of alcohol by a minor.
Nicholson spoke during a press conference Wednesday and said most of the people who attended the party have been interviewed by authorities.
The county court clerk says it's unclear if the men have attorneys.
