Hamilton County District Attorney Neal Pinkston has filed charges against three adults in connection with the alleged rape of an Ooltewah boys basketball player by three juvenile teammates.

The criminal complaint reveals a far broader assault than authorities had previously announced.

Today, Pinkston charged basketball coach Andre "Tank" Montgomery, Karl Williams and Allard "Jesse" Nayadley with violating the Tennessee law that requires mandatory reporting of child abuse, or suspected child sexual abuse.

Williams is an assistant coach for the basketball team, and Nayadley is the athletic director for Ooltewah High School.
