Three East High School football players have been arrested and charged in juvenile court after police say they forcibly held down other players and committed sex acts on them. The players eventually were kicked off the team. The three defendants, all 15, each face multiple charges in 3rd District Juvenile Court, including forcible sodomy, attempted forcible sodomy and forcible sexual abuse, all first-degree felonies.


The Deseret Morning News does not print the names of defendants charged in juvenile court.

In one incident, a student said that after East's football game against American Fork on Aug. 30 and before the game against Highland on Sept. 6, he was jumped by two students in the locker room, according to court documents. The two juveniles held the victim down while a third attempted forcible sodomy, court documents state. The boy was able to escape by fighting off his attackers.

A second student said that sometime between Sept. 3 and 6 he was in the showers at East High School when two students pulled him to the ground and forced him into a corner of the shower.


In a third incident, a student said that after sophomore football practice on Sept. 11, he was in the locker room changing when another player told him he had something on his back, according to court documents. When the victim turned around the other boy grabbed him and held him down on a bench and attempted sexual assault, court documents state.

After that incident, another sophomore who witnessed the incident reported it to one of the sophomore team coaches, who then called Leopards head coach Aaron Whitehead.

"The next morning I reported it to my administration, and then we called the Salt Lake police," Whitehead said. "We immediately suspended the three players from the team. ... We've never had anything like this happen, and we certainly do not condone such activities."


Within a day of East administrators reporting the incident, police referred the case to Salt Lake County prosecutors. The student-athletes eventually were dismissed from the team and have not been attending school at East High, although district officials declined to say whether the boys have received specific discipline, including expulsion or suspension.
Charges were filed Sept. 19.


"The school did everything they were supposed to do," said Salt Lake School District spokesman Jason Olsen.


Olsen said the school has been working closely with the victims.
The incidents were being called hazing by some. But Olsen said neither hazing nor sexual assault against any student would be tolerated in the district.


"No matter what form it takes, it is not allowed in the district," he said. "It's disappointing some students would think something like this would be OK."
Whitehead said he sought out the victim of the third attack after it was brought to his attention. The other two incidents were discovered by police investigating the third case.


"I just put my arm around him and said, 'I sure hope to see you at practice today,"' Whitehead said. The boy showed up at practice and was embraced by teammates and coaches. "He's been contributing to our team."


Whitehead said the support of the school's administration and the swift action by other players and coaches have actually helped the team members grow closer. He said that while he has sophomore team coaches who work directly with those players, "all of the players are under my stewardship."


He said he met with the players immediately after the investigation occurred and explained why it was unacceptable behavior. He said it is interesting to note that the sophomore team is having more success since the incidents occurred.


"I think they saw that the head football coach is more concerned with them developing into good young men than just winning games," Whitehead said. "The varsity team has rallied around the sophomores, and they understand that there's more to life than football."


The three students were scheduled to be in court Oct. 11.

I've heard of people being hazed on sports teams, but never did it involve the corn-holing of guys with pen0rz. This just seemed really bizarre to me.

Oh yeah, apparently this is the school at which High School Musical was filmed .

ED of course has its version of events:

I didn't know "rape" wasn't allowed in thread titles.

Some people are more touchy about that than others but there is a reason: We don't want Sociocide to come up when someone types 'rape' into Google.

Regarding the thread, the first thing that popped into my mind was this (http://www.sociocide.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48252).

Something similar to this happened to my girlfriend's brother.

He was on his Bachelor party/trip with his best friends, they all got drunk together and for no apparent reason just beat the shit out of him.

I don't really know what that says about the dynamics of male friendships and bonding, but holy shit I would never do that to my good friends.

Unless they really deserved it.

Please define "beat the shit out of".

It was something along the lines closed and hammer fists, and ghetto stompin'.

He had a black eye, cuts, scrapes, and bruises.

Okay. That is a beating, but for me, personally, that would fall short of "beating the shit out of". However, since he bore marks of the beating, I understand why you would describe it as "beating the shit out of". I would describe it as "getting beat up", though - which is understandable among drunk friends. Stupid, unreasonable, but understandable."Beating the shit out of", to me, implies the most severe of bodily traumas by attack, and would require medical attention along the lines of multiple stitches, CATscan, and x-rays. "Ass-whooping", a slightly less severe form of trauma, would include medical attention such as stitches or butterfly bandages.

The topic at hand, of course, is beyond the pale, and is not even comparable to a beating, even a severe beating. I'm been roughed up pretty good, and when I deserve it, I let it go. But a rape? That's a killing matter, frankly.

a rape? That's a killing matter, frankly.No shit. Though there were always rumors at my high school that the varsity baseball players were initiated by being sodomized with a broomstick. All of them denied it of course, so who really knows?I just don't get it. I've personally never even contemplated raping a friend just for shits and giggles.

edit- but srsly, it's always surprising when these things happen just how many parents and officials you'll see try to downplay it or legitimize it.

Yeah I get what you're saying.

I guess I was thinking along the lines that rape and violence are how you exhibit power over others. You're right he didn't get the shit beat out of him per se, but he got a good right beating. I suppose I went a little far with my description to spice up my story. I suppose the rape incident just reminded me of his beating is all.

And to the broomstick thing with baseball players; yeah I've heard that too, never happened to me (played 4 years of HS baseball). I think it's (generally) a scare tactic for rookies.

As an aside, sodomy could be a number of things it doesn't always mean anal penetration. In many states sodomy could denote any "abnormal" sexual practice, which could mean anything really.

Or rape, in MA it's the penetration of any orifice by force or coercion by an object as well as by a body part.

Oh I didn't see a charge of rape I only saw charges of sodomy. If they were charged with rape I must have read over it as I skimmed.

No, you're right, it did say sodomy. I was elaborating your point that sodomy etc. doesn't necessarily mean "rape" in the sense of penetration by penis, not that it makes it any better. I still bet there will be parents defending these assholes.

we had something less serrious but similar. A couple of kids on the wrestling team got carried away practicing the oil check on teammates in the locker room. I guess it went along the lines of: wouldn't it be cool to use a broom, dude?

So the shit hit the fan. I think the victim went somewhere else and the perps got some weak ass punishment for it. The thing is, though, I don't think those things ever just go away. Its like that kid who got raped by those white supremacists at a party; he ended up committing suicide. Shit man, I don't think that kid's gonna wrestle again, or he'll sure as hell not want to hang around in the locker room ever. That kind of shit's not a funny joke, probably fucked those kids up.
