Rogers County District Attorney Matt Ballard filed felony charges against four teens in the investigation into allegations that a Bixby football player was sexually assaulted by four teammates last fall.

Ballard charged Samuel Lakin, 17; Joe Wood, 16; William Thomas, 17; and Colton Cable, 17, with one count of rape by instrumentation. All four suspects are charged as youthful offenders.

Ballard is handling the case because the Tulsa County District Attorney's office recused itself from the investigation.
