CALHOUN, Ga. — A North Georgia sheriff says more charges could be coming in the investigation of a post-prom party where a high school senior was allegedly sexually assaulted by three 18-year-olds.

Calhoun High School students Fields Chapman, Andrew Haynes and Avery Johnson were booked Wednesday into the Gilmer County Detention Center on charges of aggravated sexual battery and underage consumption.

Bond has been set at $51,000 for each.

It's been nearly 18 days since the investigation into a post-prom attack began. But Gilmer County Sheriff Stacy Nicholson said every day was necessary to handle the “emotional” case.
