WAYNE COUNTY, N.Y. — Three Clyde-Savannah High School teenagers were back in Wayne County Court Friday afternoon.

They’re accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old teammate in the boys’ locker room before practice in October. Attorneys for the teens asked the judge to review the grand jury minutes to determine if the charges are worth bringing to trial.

The judge decided the evidence to support a charge of aggravated sexual abuse was insufficient — meaning that charge will be dropped. The other charges of hazing in the first degree and forcible touching will remain.

The three teens are suspended from school for the rest of the year.
