Four Teens Arrested for Allegedly Raping Girl

by Ramonica R. Jones

Four Groveton High School football players have been arrested for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.  

Seventeen-year-olds Alexander Pennington and Cord Williams are now out of jail on bond. Two 15-year-olds boys were arrested and released to their parents.  

All five of the students broke into the boys' field house after football practice. That's when the boys allegedly raped the eighth grade volleyball player. Groveton police charged all four boys with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The girl's grandfather came into the field house just after the attack and the boys took off running. She told authorities she was raped by at least three of the football players.

Police said the two 15-year-olds admitted having sex with her, but the older boys said they are innocent.

The case will go before the Trinity County grand jury later this month. The school district punished all five of the students for breaking into the field house.
