Six charged in Sayreville HS football scandal


Six students were charged in the Sayreville (NJ) High School football hazing scandal yesterday, per NBC’s Tom Winter.Of the six, four pleaded guilty.

The sentence was probation and 50 hours of community service each. The silver lining for all four was that none had to register for Megan’s Law, which would have required them to register as sex offenders and law enforcement basically tailing them for the rest of their lives, giving out their location and address wherever they lived, and none were found guilty of sexual assault. The case of a seventh defendant is still pending.

But that doesn’t take away from the fact that the scandal left the program reeling, so badly to the point that the school canceled the 2014 football season as it began its investigation into the potential freshman hazing. Sure, Sayreville has since brought football back for 2015, but the fact that last season was canceled should serve as a brutal reminder that the type of hazing that went down is absolutely unacceptable. Sure, harmless pranks here and there are fine, but anything of a sexual nature should never happen.

Hopefully, this process moves along quickly and everyone involved can move forward from it.
