The students were processed and released pending a hearing in Forrest County Circuit Court. Another student was also indicted in the case but will be served next week.  

Those served indictments include:  

Amanda Newman, 21, Hattiesburg  

Jill Beattie, 20, Gulfport  

Cara Percy, 20, Francisville, La.  

Melissa Bryant, 20, Hattiesburg  

Lauren Sentell, 20, Ocean Springs
