Well, it appears that at least one of the kids has some money. According to the state website, Kitzinger's case shows an appearance by James Voyles. Last I heard, it was $10K just to see/talk to the guy. All but Faladun/Falodun (name is spelled different in the state system) have lawyers. Only Voyles is what I would call a "big gun."

Face it, we are likely to see diversion programs for all involved. That means no facts will come to light. Any civil settlement will contain a non-disclosure agreement. That's it, I'm moving to Carmel for sure...that way, if my kid screws up, they won't get in too much trouble!!

Note: The state website is odd, there are some motions to unseal the indictment and motions to seal the indictment. Not sure if they are sealing those from the bus incident and unsealing those in the locker room or what.

I don't think they would fit well in the Big Brother Program.
I know you were being sarcastic, but actually, that's a real concern. I mean, if these guys get the diversion, this whole thing will potentially be wiped from their records, correct?

I'm guessing that means they will also never have to register as sex offenders.

Just think, in a few years, these fine upstanding (???) young men may indeed be able to volunteer for Big Brothers or Boy Scouts. They could pursue careers as teachers or coaches. As a parent? That's scary.

The person I would most like to hear from at this point is the nurse who filed the original report. I'm pretty sure she is not allowed to speak as there is also an ongoing CPS investigation. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall at her house when the misdemeanor charges were announced.

I understand due process, and I know these men have not yet had their day in court. But something about this case just....doesn't smell right. A parent doesn't take their child to seek medical attention without reason . A medical professional does not take a potential sexual abuse case to the police/CPS without physical evidence. It still boggles my mind to think that without this person doing her duty, this whole thing may never have seen the light of day.

It bothers me greatly that the Powers-That-Be at the Carmel School District are still painting this as a simple "hazing gone wild" incident. Sorry, but all of the anti-hazing policies in the world won't fix this one.

The charges in Hendricks County will probably be challenged based on lack of venue. No one can say without guessing where the bus was when things allegedly happened.

I take the victim's attorney coming out with this detail as meaning that they're not happy with the charges being misdemeanors, so I would expect a big, fat lawsuit against the alleged perpetrators, their families (assuming they were minors at the time), the coaches and the school district.

Based upon what I saw on the news tonight and read yesterday all the charges include those from Hendricks and Hamilton counties. The two Prosecutors did a news conference together today.

I believe you are right. Why did Leerkamp ship the case over to the Hendricks County Prosecutor? I guess just to have someone appear with her during a press conference. This is the most convoluted thing I have seen in a long time.
