Complaints have been filed in U.S. District Court in Bowling Green, accusing six more adults and three more juveniles of threatening to harm a 17-year-old girl, if she did not perform oral sex on them.
Those now in federal custody include:
Harold Sheets, 18, Bowling Green
Terrome Ludgood, 19, Whistler, AL
Everett York, 19, Nashville, TN
Brian Thompson, 19, Humbolt, TN
Phillip Reese, 24, Birmingham, AL
Delmar Jones, 18, Memphis, TN
Two adults and one juvenile were previously charged for the same incident, which allegedly took place last Aug. 10, behind a building at the Great Onyx Job Corps in Mammoth Cave National Park.
One individual is still being sought. National Park Rangers are investigating.
In a statement released Thursday, Great Onyx Job Corps officials said their hearts go out to the victim and her family, and their staff is counseling the students at the center.
