If you read or see anything about the Mepham case, you'll invariably catch someone making a statement that the whole school "feels" for the victims and supports them.
I just got off the phone with an unnamed, reliable source from within the school, who says that at least one of the victims has returned to classes. And every day, he is taunted with the name "Broomstick Boy."
How's that for support and compassion?
Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania DA, true to his word, has filed juvenile charges against the three attackers:
The Wayne County District Attorney filed juvenile deliquency petitions this morning against three Mepham High School varsity football players accused of sexually abusing three younger teammates at a training camp near Scranton, Pa., in August.
Yesterday Pennsylvania State police released a statement saying they had petitioned Wayne County District Attorney Mark Zimmer to charge the three players at the Bellmore school, ages 15, 16, and 17 at the time of the alleged attacks, with crimes that include at least three first-degree felonies.
The charges are being filed in juvenile court, but it has been said that the prosecutors might move to have the players tried as adults.
