Rye Hazing Suspects Due in Court Tuesday

The Rye High School students accused of "paddling" incoming freshmen are due back in court.

Three Rye High School students who are accused of hazing eighth-graders on June 1 are due back in court at 9 a.m. Tuesday after their case was adjourned in Rye City Court on Sept. 11 at the request of their attorneys. This case was also adjourned at the request of the the defense on July 21.

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 entered not guilty pleas 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 Rye Free Reading Room to county owned Marshlands Conservancy  in Rye on June 1. 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.

If theese three sadists are let off with a slap on the wrist, I guarantee they will be back in a year or two for something even more serious. Are they confused about their sexuality or something and need to assault innocent people? I would sentence these goofballs to 1000 hours of community service shoveling out horse stables.
