Case Dismissed in Alleged Hazing Incident

July 14, 2001|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A judge dismissed the case against a former Yucca Valley High School football player who allegedly was involved in the sexual battery of a teammate.

San Bernardino Superior Court Judge John Wade said Thursday that after two weeks of testimony, prosecutors had failed to prove the charges against the youth, now 18.

The former student, whose identity wasn't released because he was tried as a minor, was among a group of football players accused of sexually abusing a teammate during an alleged hazing incident at the high school last fall.

Five other juveniles charged in the case entered plea bargains.
