Deepa Bharath A Superior Court judge said he will decide next week whether to drop an enhanced charge against one of the defendants in a gang rape case that could determine if the teenager would face life in prison, if convicted.

Haidl and Nachreiner face enhancements for allegedly inflicting great bodily injury to the unconscious victim and using a deadly weapon -- in this case a pool cue -- to sexually assault her. The three, students at Rancho Cucamonga High School, will be tried as adults for the July 6, 2001, incident that reportedly happened in Don Haidl's Corona del Mar home.

Deepa Bharath SANTA ANA -- The Orange County district attorney on Friday filed a pared-down version of the initial complaint in the trial of a high-profile gang-rape case, hoping that it would "simplify" the case for prospective jurors the second time around, officials said. Prosecutors have filed nine felony complaints against Greg Haidl, the son of Orange County Assistant Sheriff Don Haidl, Kyle Nachreiner and Keith Spann, including rape and oral copulation by intoxication, sexual penetration by intoxication and assault with a deadly weapon -- in this case a pool cue. Prosecutors say the three defendants, all now 19, raped an unconscious 16-year-old girl and sexually assaulted her with a Snapple bottle, a juice can, a lighted cigarette and a pool cue as she lay on a pool table in the garage of the assistant sheriff's Corona del Mar home in July 2002.
