School District Cleared In Hazing Incident
TORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ State officials who investigated alleged hazing by Torrington High School football players have cleared the school district of any wrongdoing.
The investigation by the Department of Children and Families was in response to reports that four football team members were involved in hazing last September. School officials have refused to release details of the alleged incidents, but say four varsity team members were suspended for five days and missed two games after a review by Principal Joanne Creedon.
The Republican-American reports that Superintendent of Schools Cheryl Kloczko announced the results of the DCF investigation Wednesday.
It’s not clear whether any of the football players involved in the hazing are among the four football team members arrested this year on sexual assault charges involving two 13-year-old girls.
