ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The felony charges have been dropped for the three students of Clyde-Savannah High School who will appear in court on sex abuse charges.
The Judge dismissed the felony counts for the three defendants in court. The defendants are still facing two misdemeanor charges.
They are expected to be back in court on April 24, 2024.
Last month, the case was adjourned, with the defense arguing a lack of evidence to maintain all of the felony charges. The defense wanted the charges reduced or dismissed, while the prosecution wants the charges to remain as they are.
In January, the DA’s Office told News 8 that they have kept in contact with the victim and his family and are asking the public to remain patient.
The three teens — a 15-year-old boy, a 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy — were all members of the school’s Varsity Football team. They were accused of assaulting a 14-year-old boy in the school’s locker room.
They were all charged with felony aggravated sexual abuse, first-degree hazing, and forcible touching. An order of protection was issued for the defendants.
The hearing is scheduled for Friday at 1:30 p.m.
