The Hopkinsville Police Department is investigating a sexual harassment claim that reportedly occurred at a local middle school.
According to the report, an 11-year old male student at Christian County Middle School has been continually harassed by fellow students.
Police say the 11-year old has been called names throughout the school year and several students have tried to start physical altercations with him and have repeatedly grabbed him.
The two male suspects have not been charged, but may face 3rd degree sexual abuse and harassment charges.
Police say harassment is a criminal offense and should not be tolerated in any situation.
One of two suspects charged in connection with the murder of a Fort Campbell soldier appeared for his arraignment in Christian District Court via video conference today.
Judge James Adams explained the charges against 24-year old Jarred Tabor Long of 2880 Kivera Court, Grand Junction, Colorado.
According to Judge Adams, Long faces 20 years or life in prison and even the death penalty if he is found guilty of murder and he told Judge Adams he understood the charges against him.
Meanwhile, Judge Adams asked if the 24-year old Colorado man was able to afford an attorney and Long replied he could not afford an attorney at this time.
A not-guilty plea was entered in his behalf and Judge Adams continued his case until Wednesday morning for a preliminary hearing and appointed a public defender from a different office to handle his case.
According to Long’s arrest warrant, the 24-year old was the one who fatally shot 28-year old Vincent Goslyn multiple times on Friday, February 3rd.
The other suspect charged with murder is 25-year old Jessie Goslyn, who was the victim’s wife and law enforcement officials believe Jessie Goslyn and Long were in a romantic relationship at the time.

The arrest warrant for the man charged in connection with the shooting death of a Fort Campbell soldier February 3rd on Fidelio Road gives a little more information on the case.
The warrant alleges that 24-year old Jarred Tabor Long of 2880 Kivera Court, Grand Junction, Colorado was the one who pulled the trigger and shot 28-year old Vincent Goslyn multiple times until he was dead.
Police say they got that information through interviewing the other suspect charged with murder—25-year old Jessie Goslyn—who was the victim’s wife. One law enforcement official has said Jessie Goslyn and Long were in a romantic relationship at the time.
Ms. Goslyn appeared in district court last week and a not guilty plea was entered on her behalf when she told the judge she couldn’t afford an attorney. Long was picked up at the Mesa County Jail by Christian County detectives last night around 6:30 and will appear in court at 12:30 today for arraignment.
A Hopkinsville doctor was arrested Saturday and charged with growing and selling marijuana.
Deputies with the Christian County Sheriff’s office executed a search warrant at the 15253 North Madisonville Road residence of 58-year old Doctor Gloria Staples Friday evening and arrested her Saturday.
The arrest card says police found more than five marijuana plants in a “grow room” in the upstairs of the residence. Other equipment commonly associated with the growing, selling and smoking of marijuana were also allegedly found. Those items included rolling papers, pipes and bongs.
Doctor Staples, who runs a practice on North Drive, was charged with cultivating marijuana, trafficking in marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
She was booked into the Christian County Jail and released the same day on bond.
