Yes, four Indiana high school basketball players from Carmel High School outside of Indianapolis were arrested on charges this week, but they were all misdemeanor charges. That angered the parents of one of the victims who said it went way beyond simple team hazing.
In a news conference with the couple, their attorney, Robert Turner, said the boy was physically violated, adding “that’s a little bit more than a simple hazing incident.” Legal experts said that even Turner’s short description of the attack calls into question the filing of misdemeanor counts against four Carmel seniors who were charged earlier this week. Turner, a former Indianapolis Police Department official and city director of public safety, described the attacks as “a physical grabbing, a confinement to the point that he was held down, the removal of clothing and just in general I would just say anal penetration. “I won’t get any further than that, but that’s a little bit more than a simple hazing incident.”
