Six teenagers charged in Sayreville High School football scandal

Monday August 31st, 2015

Six teenagers were charged in the 2014 Sayreville High School football locker room hazing scandal Monday, according to NBC News's Tom Winter.

The defendants were adjudicated delinquent or pleaded guilty to hazing and simple assault charges filed against them. They have been placed on probation and will each have to do 50 hours of community service.

The teens avoided having to register for Megan's Law, however, and none were found guilty of the most serious charges involving sexual assault.

A seventh defendant's case is still pending.

Sayreville's 2014 football season was canceled after seven players were arrested and charged with crimes stemming from allegations of freshman hazing inside the school's locker room.

Sayreville announced in January that football will return for the 2015 season.
