Three Rye High School students who are accused of hazing eighth-graders on June 1 are due back in court in October after their cases were adjourned in Rye City Court on Tuesday, the Westchester County District Attorney’s office said.
Sean Hinson, Tristan Scragg, both 17, and Max Meyerson, 16, are charged with second-degree felony assault and misdemeanor counts of first-degree hazing and second-degree unlawful imprisonment. They have all for the misdemeanor charges and acknowledged receipt of orders of protection issued by the court for an unnamed witness.
The alleged incident involved at least two victims who were taken by car from to county owned in Rye. According to the Westchester County Police, the victims were "'paddled' multiple times with a large piece of lumber, causing bruising and other injuries to their buttocks and legs."
