Wylie High School student Montell Whitney, 17, was arrested for second-degree felony sexual assault/rape May 7, 2013. 

ABILENE, Texas -

A Wylie High School student arrested in the spring for sexually assaulting a child was indicted Friday.

Montell Whitney, 17, was interviewed at the Taylor County Law Enforcement Center in April. In his arrest report, detectives said Whitney had allegedly sexually assaulted a girl who is under the age of 18.

At the time of Whitney’s arrest, Wylie ISD officials refused to comment on whether the victim was another student; however, they clarified that the assault did not occur on campus.

A Taylor County grand jury indicted Whitney for second degree felony sexual assault of a child Thursday.
