In Mississippi, five highschool students have been arrested after gang-raping another student. None of their ages, names or genders were released because all of the students were involved were under the age of 18, but so far, it is known that one of the students charged is an athletes. The incident occurred off campus in March over a weekend and has nothing to do with the school, aside for the fact that is how all the kids know each other.
The students were arrested on Thursday, some were apprehended in their homes and the others were apprehended at West Lauderdale High School. All of the students involved in the dirty deed face charges of sexual battery. The investigation is still on-going and no details will be released on the case until there is more traction.
