Parents Sue School District over Soccer Players' Hazing

La Puente High School students accused of sexually assaulting freshmen with foreign objects


An attorney announced a lawsuit against La Puente High School and the La Puente School District Monday morning on behalf of four teenage boys who were allegedly sexually assaulted by fellow members of their high school soccer team.

Attorney Brian Claypool said in a news conference that four freshman boys, who had made La Puente High's Varsity soccer team, were hazed by older teammates in a room next to the coach's office.

The alleged incidents are believed to have occurred in May of this year and involved 14 and 15-year-old victims.
