PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Charges have been submitted to the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office in Missouri regarding an alleged sex crime committed by a Bradley University basketball player.

Elijah Childs has not been cleared from the investigation that originally involved himself and three other basketball players.

As previously reported, the four were in town for two games against Missouri State when they showed up on a police report. At that time, police said they were investigating a “sex offense” that was not rape.

Dane Rennier, the assistant prosecuting attorney said in an email the charges are for suspected sodomy in the second degree.

“That investigation is still under review with our office and the records associated with it are closed records,” he said in an email.
