More charges to come for one Gilmer Co. rape suspect

Posted: Updated:
GILMER COUNTY, GA (WRCB) - The investigation continues in the post-prom party sexual assault that left one woman seriously injured and three young men facing charges of aggravated sexual battery.

Suspects Fields Chapman, Damon Avery Johnson and Andrew Haynes surrendered to the Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office and bonded out shortly afterwards.

Gilmer County Sheriff Stacy Nicholson told the Times-Courier newspaper Tuesday that the investigation is still underway, and said “But I will tell you this — most probably, additional charges will come against one that has already been arrested.”

Nicholson also told the paper that arrests for the party-goers for underage alcohol consumption will come “very quick.”

“It’s just not top priority,” he said. “Everybody involved in this thing has either been in trouble or is going to be in trouble, and they know it. We’ve just not done that at this point … but it’s still a very active investigation.”

All three suspects were student-athletes at Calhoun High School, where they recently graduated, but were not allowed to attend the ceremonies.

    The president may legally pardon people for specific or broad federal criminal acts, and while somewhat unusual, the president may legally do so before any judicial proceeding regarding the acts is complete — before prosecution, for example.
