Shore Sports Network has reported that at least one female student was allegedly sexually assaulted by a football player from Wall High School located at 1630 18th Ave, Wall Township, NJ 07719.
The high school football player has been accused of sexually assaulting a female student, but there could be other victims. The student has been released from custody and formal charges have not been made against him, as the assault is being investigated further.
The same football student is part of another ongoing sexual assault investigation. A video emerged showing six alleged junior football players sexually assaulting another sophomore player on the school campus. The incident has been determined to be a hazing initiation but is under investigation. While three coaches have been placed on administrative leave, no disciplinary actions have been made against the students involved.
To learn more about the hazing incident:
Attorney contributor Brian Kent has years of experience representing sexual assault victims and their parents in civil lawsuits. Brian recently discussed the legal options available to school sexual assault victims and their families.
"By law, schools are responsible for ensuring their students are safe from preventable dangers that include sexual assault. Unfortunately, there have been many recent reports of sexual abuse on and off the school campus. Some of these cases might have been preventable if the school had not been negligent. Standard safety measures include reporting and investigating students or officials that have been accused of previous misconduct."
"A student sex abuse investigation looks at both the alleged abuser and any negligent parties. If school negligence is found, the school can be held liable in a civil lawsuit filed by the victim and their family. It is highly advised for victims to seek legal guidance from an experienced sex abuse lawyer."
