Teens charged in New Jersey high school football hazing scandal
Police have arrested six New Jersey High School football players who are accused of hazing and sexual assault.
The hazing incident happened at Sayreville War Memorial High School in Central New Jersey.
The accused teens range in age from fifteen to seventeen.
They are charged with various counts of aggravated sexual assault, criminal restraint and hazing.
Prosecutors say the teenagers turned out the lights in the locker room and sexually abused four victims over the course of a ten day period in September.
A seventh teen has also been charged, but he hasn’t been arrested yet.
The Sayreville War Memorial High School football program has won three state championships in the last four years.
This season has been cancelled in the wake of the hazing scandal.
