Report: 2 arrested in LSU student rape investigation bond out of jail

The other two suspects arrested remain in jail.

BATON ROUGE, La. — Two of the four men arrested in the rape investigation of an LSU student have bonded out of jail on Wednesday as WBRZ reports.

On Tuesday, a judge set bond for Casen Carver, 18, and Everett Lee, 27 which also included they be required to be under house arrest and wear an ankle monitor.

The other two men arrested, Kaivon Washington, 18, and an unidentified 17-year-old remain in jail as of Wednesday morning.

On Monday, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office announced that Carver, Lee, Washington, and a 17-year-old juvenile were arrested and face third-degree rape charges for the alleged rape of LSU student Madison Brooks before her death.

Investigators say Brooks' blood-alcohol level was .319% at the time of the crash, according to arrest documents.

According to Louisiana law, a third-degree rape occurs “when the victim is incapable of resisting or of understanding the nature of the act because of a stupor or abnormal condition of mind produced by an intoxicating agent or any cause and the offender knew or should have known of the victim's incapacity.”

After the alleged rape authorities say the men dropped Brooks off in a neighborhood and she was later fatally struck by a car on Burbank Drive.

The driver who hit Brooks stayed on the scene and immediately called the police. The unnamed driver was tested and found not to be impaired and does not face any charges in the crash.

Brooks and three of the suspects were underage drinking at Reggie's Bar in Tigerland. Since the incident officials have suspended the bar’s liquor license.
