Second IUSB basketball player facing rape charges

A second former IUSB student and basketball player has been arrested on a rape charge in connection with an incident at an on-campus apartment.

Phillip Corthen III was taken into custody on Monday.

The alleged assault happened back in February after Corthen and Joseph Bannister met the victim at a party, then went back to Bannister’s apartment.

Investigators say both Corthen and Bannister admitted to having sex with the victim.

Bannister was arrested earlier this month, but has since bonded out of jail.
