Boise State Football Player Charged in Widening Male Rape Case

Some disturbing news out of Boise State University.

Reuters reports: Clarke

Three college football players and two others are facing a raft of sexual crime, battery and false imprisonment charges stemming from incidents at a high school in Blackfoot, Idaho, last year, according to court documents.

Police say the five athletes forcibly penetrated fellow members of the high school basketball team and battered and restrained the victims in a locker room and on a school bus during a three-month period that began last December.

Charged are Anthony Clarke (pictured), now a freshman wide receiver at Boise State University, Nathan Walker, a tight end for the Idaho State University Bengals, Logan Chidester, a freshman on the football team at Carroll College in Montana and Tyson Katseanes of Blackfoot, all 19. A fifth, unnamed defendant has been charged as a juvenile in the case.

Since the charges have been filed, more victims have come forward:

Blackfoot Police Captain Kurt Asmus said on Thursday that law enforcement officials had contacted additional victims since charges were filed earlier this month based on allegations made by four people.

"It has mushroomed from there," Asmus said. "Now that everything is out, more victims are coming forward because they realize they are not alone and they don't need to be afraid or embarrassed."

He said authorities are tracking leads in other states and that additional charges were likely.

  1. Makes one rethink all those stupid fantasies gay men have of 'jock sex.'

  4. hey Gabe, homosexuals are not the only people with such fantasies. Nor are they the only ones having anal sex, or a host of multiple partners or an open relationship, or everything else the stereotype perpetuates

  5. I'm listening for "boys will be boys" from the straight crowd.

  6. Noticed that no mention is made of precisely WHAT the object of implementation was...

  7. @Gabe: What's to stupid about fantasies of "jock sex"?

    I've seen your postings before and they make me think you've got some unresolved issues around being gay yourself.

  8. Idaho - where men are men and sheep are nervous.

  9. There is a big difference between fantasy and reality.

  10. A fine upstanding example of good xian Idahoan athletes! Watch for Liberty University to be recruiting these boys (after they are all booted from their current schools and teams).

    Oh, and AFTER they spend a few years being forcibly penetrated themselves in jail/prison.

  12. @Josh: what is so funny about rape? Go promote your intensely boring shity blog someplace else. Ashole.

  13. Yup, jock privileges. I remember a couple years ago where a wrestler(i think) was bounced from the college team for having consensual sex in some gay porn. Somebody will find a loophole for these.
    Guys like this probably insist that their girlfriends give head but wouldn;'t dream of returning the favor.

  14. Boise State has nothing to do with this story. The events took place before this stuent got there and the college did release this player once charges came to light I believe. If a coach goes into the locker room during showers he runs a real risk of being labeled gay which results in job loss. Jock coaches don't want to know what their star players are doing. Straight boys rape other boys and straight boys are raped. Left unpunished they will go on to date rape in college. It's always a crime whoever is involved.

  15. These are going to be hard cases to prove. What happened on the school bus?? Jocks have no problem getting all the sex they want, so this would have to be guys with a sadistic streak who've watched too much Internet rape porn. Expect their social media, phones and computers to be scanned for evidence.

  16. Wide receiver? Tight end?

    Just sayin' (because you know somebody will).

    Posted by: Anastasia Beaverhausen | Dec 17, 2010 2:23:54 PM

  17. Where were the coaches while all this was going on?

    Posted by: ichabod | Dec 17, 2010 2:34:40 PM

  18. By the look on that guys face, I'd guess that he's in fact 'receiving' something 'wide'.

  19. Awaiting the usual gutter based "woof" comment from the pond scum here on Towle in 4, 3, 2,...

  20. Echoes of the Graham James sexual assault cases in junior hockey, although as coach he exerted even more power over his victims. Whoever reported these alleged rapists to the authorities is a hero, much like Sheldon Kennedy who risked his personal hockey career to report his abuse. The other victims need to step forward for their own well-being; Theo Fleury is a good example of the substance abuse and violence that can result if the assaults are not dealt with.

  21. Nanny, it's already starting! Crazy!

    Posted by: Rowan | Dec 17, 2010 3:12:06 PM

  22. If there is anything good that has come of this, it's that these rapist closet-case assholes got caught relatively early in life, before they could subject any more victims to their projected self-loathing. Including any possible wives or children they would have had. I hope they are locked up forever.

    And @ Gabre R L: You should try to take that big hard mental leap and distinguish between sex play between two consenting adults in a safe situation, and what occurred in Idaho. For some people, S+M (and, for that matter, jock fantasies) is/are a way to deal with broader issues related to how we see ourselves as gay men and how we are treated in the world and society. For others, it's just plain ol' fun. But whatever one's reasons for enjoying those things, they are sexual options that cause no harm to anyone. Any snarky comment says more about your discomfort with adult sexuality than about anyone who is engaging with -- and maybe even (gasp) having fun with -- their own.

  23. @Como'mo: those wrestlers (there were two) weren't even engaged in consensual sex, they were solo scenes obviously geared to a male audience.

  24. "It has mushroomed from there," as it always does.

    Boise, eh? Anyone remember 1955?

    Posted by: KevinVT | Dec 17, 2010 4:25:32 PM

  25. This is the exact plot of 90 percent of gay porn, only minus the whole consent and acting parts.

    It baffles my mind how you can systematically rape your team mates and still consider yourself straight.

    And how could the administration not know abou this? Do they ever look in the locker room?
