2nd student pleads to lesser charges in high school assault

SPOKANE, Mo. (AP) — A second southwest Missouri high school graduate charged in an alleged sexual assault of a classmate and the kidnapping another has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Twenty-year-old Chandler Brown, of Highlandville, pleaded guilty Wednesday to peace disturbance, a misdemeanor. He was given six months of unsupervised probation and 100 hours of community service.

The Springfield News-Leader reports Brown and Chandler Brown — who are not related — were indicted two years ago. They were originally charged with two felonies and three misdemeanors after allegedly restraining and sexually assaulting a male classmate in a baseball dugout at Spokane High School in 2016 and restraining and threatening to assault another student a year later.

All the original charges were dropped last month against Tanner Brown after he also pleaded guilty to peace disturbance.
