Murray County: High school student charged with aggravated sodomy

Shawn Fry, 18-year-old, is charged with aggravated sodomy in Murray County.

A Murray County high school student will appear in court Wednesday on charges of forcing another student to be involved in sexual acts in a school bathroom.

Shawn Fry, 18, a student at Murray County High School, was charged with aggravated sodomy after a 16-year-old student complained to a teacher earlier in March, authorities said.

The incident allegedly happened in the school boy's bathroom, said Conasauga Judicial Circuit District Attorney Kermit McManus.

Fry was originally denied bond in Magistrate Court because a magistrate can't issue bond for a charge with a sentencing range that goes up to life in prison, McManus said.

Fry will appear before a Superior Court judge Wednesday to discuss a possible bond, he said.
