Jacob Walter was once a star athlete who had been committed to playing basketball at Xavier University but as of December, is being held in Boone County Jail in Kentucky on a charge of rape. According to WCPO Cincinnati, Walter assaulted an 18-year-old girl by choking her and repeatedly telling her “she would be fine.”
A similar incident also occurred in May of 2018 in which the victim was sent to the hospital, much like the newest case. Facing two similar cases, attorneys think that Walter will be facing a lifetime as a registered sex offender.
“Now what he's looking at is lifetime registration. This is about control, when they're an adult. It is about protecting society." -Alex Lubans-Otto, Kentucky attorney
Walter is the graduate of Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky. Videos recently appeared on the internet depicting students from Covington taunting a Native American elder and Vietnam War veteran during the Indigenous Peoples March on Friday.
