Two of the four Clyde-Savannah High School football players arrested last week for their roles in an alleged sexual assault that occurred in the team’s locker room on Halloween appeared in court on Wednesday. Prosecutors said they will be making a motion to keep the case in Youth Court, despite the defense maintaining it should remain in Family Court.
Last week, a Wayne County Grand Jury indicted a 15-year-old, 16-year-old, and 17-year-old on felony aggravated sexual abuse charges as well as misdemeanor hazing and forcible touching charges. A second 16-year-old was charged with two felony counts of unlawful surveillance. The victim in the case is a 14-year-old teammate.
WROC in Rochester reports all four suspects have not attended school since the incident.
Last week’s postponed Clyde-Savannah School Board meeting, the first since the alleged Halloween incident, is rescheduled for tonight at 7.
