Earlier this month, deputies arrested four men in connection with an incident that ultimately resulted in LSU student Madison Brooks being struck and killed by a car in Baton Rouge. Two of the men were charged with third-degree rape, investigators said. The other two were charged with rape in principle, meaning they were present but not involved in the alleged crime, according to detention documents.
Representatives charged Walker’s 18-year-old Kaivon Deondre Washington and an unidentified minor with third-degree rape. Minors are over 17 years old. Sources confirmed to WAFB that both were students at Walker High School. Click here for a link to the Washington Warrant.
Everett Lee, 28, of Pine Grove, and Casen Carver, 18, of Denham Springs, were both charged with third-degree rape.
Charges of third-degree rape typically involve the victim’s “inability to resist or understand the nature of the act, a drowsiness or a state of insanity resulting from intoxication or otherwise, and the perpetrator knew or should have known of the victim’s incapacity,” according to Louisiana law .
Investigators said Carver admitted that he and three other men went to drink at Reggie’s bar near the LSU campus, according to the search warrant. He said Brooks left the bar with them “she was very unsteady on her feet, couldn’t keep her balance and spoke with a slurred lisp,” the arrest document said. Carver reportedly told investigators that his 17-year-old boyfriend and Brooks would “hug and walk together.”
Investigators said Carver told them Brooks asked for a ride home. He told investigators that both Washington and the 17-year-old girl had asked Brooks to have sex with them, and she agreed, the warrant said.
