Arraignment postponed for former Calhoun High students
Updated: August 20, 2014 - 12:20 am

The arraignments for three recent Calhoun High School graduates charged with aggravated sexual battery and other charges have been continued until September, the Gilmer County Superior Court clerk’s office said.
The arraignments were scheduled for Tuesday.
Motions seeking to disqualify the Dalton law firm of McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham LLP from the case and concerning “extrajudicial” comments — comments outside the court setting — were also continued until September. No specific date was available.
A member of the McCamy firm, Steve Williams, represents defendant Andrew Haynes. Another member of the firm, Sam Sanders, represents Rhett Harper who was at the post-prom party at an Ellijay cabin on May 10 following which a woman reported she was raped by “multiple guys,” which led to the charges. Harper was not charged.
Williams and Sanders both declined to comment on the motions. Jesse Vaughn, an attorney for defendant Avery Johnson, also declined to comment on the motions.
Haynes and Fields Benjamin Chapman, both of Calhoun, and Johnson of Dalton, were reindicted by a grand jury on Aug. 5 on aggravated sexual battery and sexual battery charges. Additional charges of aggravated battery and public indecency were added in the re-indictment.
Johnson was indicted at that time on a sodomy charge that was attributed to Haynes in the original indictment.
In addition to the sodomy charge, Johnson is charged with two counts of aggravated sexual battery, five counts of aggravated battery, two counts of sexual battery and three counts of public indecency.
Haynes is charged with four counts of aggravated sexual battery, five counts of aggravated battery, two counts of sexual battery and one count of public indecency.
Chapman is charged with four counts of aggravated sexual battery, five counts of aggravated battery, two counts of sexual battery, a count of sodomy and a count of public indecency.
Chapman is charged in a separate case with 28 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
