Former Student Facing 2 Rape Charges Takes Plea Deal, Will Serve 12 Months Probation


A former Indiana University student facing rape charges stemming from two separate incidents accepted a plea deal and was sentenced Thursday.

John Enochs will serve 12 months probation as per the terms of his plea agreement. He agreed to plead guilty to battery with moderate bodily injury (class A misdemeanor) and his two rape charges were thrown out. Court documents show he spent one day in jail.

The most recent incident reportedly occurred in April.

According to court records, the victim told police she’d been raped at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house, but didn’t know her alleged attacker. She said she told him to stop repeatedly, but he held her down. Eventually she was able to leave the room and get away.

Authorities said security footage showed Enochs and the victim both entering the room. After about 24 minutes she is seen leaving. Health officials determined she suffered a laceration to her genitals.

During the investigation of that report, police found a similar case from 2013. The victim in that case agreed to help investigators, and Enochs was later arrested based off of DNA evidence and witness statements.
