ELLIJAY, Ga. (AP) Three former high school students in north Georgia have been indicted in connection with a sexual assault reported at an after-prom party in May. <br />
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports a grand jury in Gilmer County returned charges of sexual battery and sodomy Monday against Fields Chapman, Andrew Haynes and Avery Johnson. The indictment comes more than a month after the former Calhoun High School students turned themselves in to sheriff's officials May 28 on charges of aggravated sexual battery. <br />
All three men are accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman during a cabin party after their high school prom May 10. <br />
Johnson's attorney, Jesse Lee Vaughn, said at least one witness told police the woman was conscious and acting consensually. He said Johnson plans to plead not guilty. <br />
