The assault was reported to have taken place on September 15, 2021, in the athletic locker room. Officials did not release further details of the incidents due to the victim's age. 

Three students have been arrested for the incident being labeled as hazing. The arrested suspects include 17-year-old Jonathan Romer, 18-year-old Paxton Rock, and 18-year-old Evan Crosby. Two other juveniles are expected to be charged in the alleged hazing incident as well.

Can Students Sexually Assaulted During Hazing Sue?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced school hazing attorney in the state of Texas. Marc often represents victims of sexual abuse, including those involved in violent high school hazing incidents. Recently, he highlighted the legal recourse available to victims of hazing in high schools and their right to recover compensation.

"High school hazing incidents have been occurring for years across the country. Many states have currently enforced stricter laws regarding hazing. Unfortunately, this has not prevented the occurrence in both high schools and colleges. Too often, hazing incidents involve sexual assault or a victim consuming lethal quantities of alcohol or other drugs, resulting in hospitalization or death. Most initiating hazing takes place in athletic groups in high school and college sororities or fraternities."

"Schools and officials are legally accountable for providing a safe environment for their students; this includes locker rooms. Safety measures should be implemented to ensure students are safe from preventable violent crime while on the school campus. Many times hazing occurs as a result of the school or school official's negligence."

"Victims have the legal option to file a civil lawsuit against any negligent third party; this may include the school or coach. If the school officials failed to provide a level of safety measures to reduce the risk of hazing, they could be liable in court. A coach could also be tried in court if they did not report any instances of misconduct. Victims, along with their families, should retain an experienced school hazing attorney to make the best decision for legal action."
