Police Say Sedalia Football Player Hazed

1 decade 3 years 6 months ago Wednesday, November 02 2005 Nov 2, 2005 Wednesday, November 02, 2005 9:03:39 AM CST November 02, 2005 in News

A freshman football player told Sedalia Police three players sexually assaulted him in the locker room at the Smith Cotton tiger's stadium. The football player told police that after practice he was assaulted inside the locker room at Jennie Jaynes Stadium.  The victim told a reporter from the Sedalia Democrat he went into the varsity locker room on October 11th to get a drink of water. The victim said two varsity players held him down while another player jumped on top of him and hit him in the face with his penis. The victim reported the incident last week.  Police brought the case to the Pettis County Prosecutor with a recommendation the prosecutor charge the suspects with 2nd degree sexual misconduct.

"In this case the violation of sexual misconduct would be exposure of any genitals or things like that that would cause an alarm to somebody or some kind of sexual contact," says Sargent Mike Perkins of the Sedalia Police Department. 

Smith Cotton head football coach Mark Johnson said the school suspended the students implicated in the incident indefinitely from the team for violating the high school's hazing policy. The Superintendent says this type of action is not allowed.

"It's an unfortunate circumstance and we don't condone this type of behavior," Doug Ebersold says.

Ebersold wants to make sure there won't be more victims in the future.

"We'll do some educating with our athletes and coaches to tell them what to watch for so that something like this won't happen again," Ebersold says.

Pettis County Prosecuting attorney Jeff Mittel Hauser says he will probably make a decision this week whether to file criminal charges against the suspects.
