    BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC) - An 18-year-old former Covington Catholic basketball player has been indicted on rape and sodomy charges. Jacob Walter is locked up on $250,000 bond.

    The alleged victim said she told him in December that she didn't want to have sex because she was sick. She said Walter forced her to have sex with him three times, pulled her hair and choked her. She told police he laughed when she said he was hurting her.

    During a court appearance in December, Walter's attorney asked that his bond be reduced. The judge denied that request, citing the severity of the charges.

    This is the second time Walter has been charged with rape. He was charged as a juvenile last May.

    Walter will be back in court on Feb. 6.
