Lawsuit Filed Against High School Over Alleged Hazing Abuses
The Special Victims Unit of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department said that it has arrested four students, three of them juveniles, and released them to their parents.
The department has interviewed more than 70 students about the allegations.
"The hazing incidents have gone on for several years and may have risen to the level of a crime," Sgt. Al Fraijo of the Special Victims Bureau said in a statement. "At this point there is no information to indicate that any member of faculty or coaching staff were directly involved."
Attorney Brian Claypool alleged, however, that the team's "teacher/soccer coach lured young boys to a back room to facilitate varsity members of the team sexually assaulting the boys by attempting to sodomize them with a foreign object."
