You know, when this incident first happened last year, it was hard for us to tell if this was a real case of hazing, or just a family looking to make some money because their son got pushed around in the locker room. As you may recall, one of the first things the parents of the victim did was hold a press conference . . . quite an unusual move in a hazing case.
But apparently the incident was serious enough for the state to bring charges against three Dr. Phillips High School (Florida) football players and have a trial. Interestingly, a plea deal that would have amounted to a slap on the wrist was offered to the accused and they refused, preferring to go to trial. Could be interesting.
