Three former Westminster Christian Academy students accused of hanging a noose on campus are now charged with intent to intimidate and public display of a noose.

The school released an updated statement today, which says that none of the students involved are enrolled at the school now. To read the statement, scroll down. 

Judah Benjamin Barber, 18, surrendered to deputies at the St. Landry Parish Jail after warrant was issued for his arrest.  He was booked and bonded out.  The two other students, both juveniles, were booked and released into their parents' custody.

Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says he moved forward with the charges after an investigation found enough probable cause to arrest the students.

"This kind of incident should never happen and will affect both sides the rest of their lives," Sheriff Guidroz said in a press release.  "Jokes or actions like this are hateful, humiliating, and degrading to the persons who they are directed to and will cast a very dark shadow on the students that preformed the actions for the rest of their lives."
