Man who posed as Odessa Permian student faces 6 felonies

ODESSA, Texas (AP) - A 22-year-old man accused of posing as a high school basketball star in West Texas has been indicted on six felonies including sexual assault and tampering with government records.

Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland said Tuesday that the indictment also alleges that Guerdwich Montimer committed identity theft.

Montimer, who was indicted Monday, played basketball last year at Odessa Permian High School, whose football team and backers inspired the book "Friday Night Lights."

Mickey Gaines, speaking for Montimer's court-appointed attorney, declined to comment.

Jabari A. Caldwell, who enrolled him at a junior high school two years ago using a fake birth certificate from Haiti and claiming to be Montimer's half brother, faces four felonies.
