PARLIN, N.J. (AP) — The last of seven high school students facing sex crime charges amid a hazing investigation that canceled a New Jersey prep football team’s season has surrendered to authorities.
Middlesex County prosecutors say the youth surrendered early Saturday, but declined to release further information due to the defendant’s age.
The six other students, ranging in age from 15 to 17, were arrested Friday night in connection with the assaults at regional football power Sayreville War Memorial High School.
The district canceled the remainder of football team’s season after the school superintendent said there was evidence of pervasive harassment, intimidation and bullying.
Prosecutors say the youths must appear before a Family Court judge but no hearing has been scheduled.
