EULA, Texas — Two Eula men were arrested over the weekend, charged with sexual assault.
You may remember back in September, the hazing incident that occurred at Eula High School.
Two boys involved in the Eula High School sexual assault case back in September, turned themselves in Saturday morning.
The sexual assault occurred at the Eula High School baseball locker room on September 15th, when a group of five boys wrestled a victim to the ground. One is accused of sexual assault using a spray air freshener.
The members were identified as Paxton Rock and Jonathan Romer, both 17 years old and considered adults at the time of the assault.
They are charged with a count of second degree sexual assault. The range of punishment is two to 20 years.
Chad Campbell, Chief Deputy of the Callahan County Sheriffs Office, says that it’s never easy dealing with cases like this, especially in the small community that Eula is.
“Everybody knows everybody um so investigating these things from a criminal standpoint um obviously it’s even tough on us”.
Campbell says that he feels the boys didn’t know the extent of what they were doing at the time, but they do now.
“It’s amazing what can happen in just a matter of a couple seconds and where it can where it can go once you’re there and it’s too late”.
Campbell also says that from here, the case will go over to the legal system and the courts to be prosecuted.
There could be more warrants issued and arrests made in the near future.
UPDATE: A third suspect in the case turned himself in this morning.
Evan Crosby self-surrendered this morning to police, and was later released on bail, according to the Callahan County Chief Deputy.
Crosby is facing the same charges as Rock and Romer.
