Maine West, Dist. 207 officials cleared after outside investigation
An outside investigation into the hazing at Maine West High School has cleared several officials of any wrong-doing.
The investigation was launched after several members of the boys’ soccer team claimed they were sexually abused as part of a hazing ritual.
One coach was fired, another suspended and six team members face misdemeanor charges.
The investigation concluded District 207 officials responded appropriately to the allegations.
The coaches, as well as school officials and the district, are all named in a lawsuit brought by alleged hazing victims.
