Henderson County Sheriff Charlie McDonald confirmed to News 13's Mario Boone, Friday, that an alleged rape happened at the home of one of his deputies.
The alleged sexual attack happened December 8th at a party hosted by the deputy's son, according to law enforcement sources. McDonald said the deputy and most of his family were out of town at the time and unaware of the incident.
Rumors began circulating at East Henderson High School where the alleged victim is a student. Her suspected attackers are also students there and reportedly members of the school's football team.
McDonald said he called in the SBI to ensure the public's confidence in the investigation. So far, no arrests have been made. The sheriff is not disclosing names of any students involved until formal charges are filed.
