3 convicted on charges in Tennessee high school basketball rape case
SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. – One Tennessee high school basketball player was found guilty of aggravated rape and two others were found guilty of aggravated assault against a freshman teammate, a person familiar with the juvenile court case said Tuesday.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the hearing Tuesday involving the Ooltewah High School students was closed to the public and no ruling was publicly announced immediately afterward. The defendants’ names haven’t been released because they were in juvenile court.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press first reported the verdicts.
