SAYREVILLE, New Jersey – Six of the seven Sayreville High School football players on trial for allegedly hazing young players were given probation Monday.

A seventh player's case is still pending, according to his attorney.

None of the six students have to register for Megan's Law, and all were given 50 hours of community service.  Four of the players received two years probation after pleading guilty to child endangerment and hazing.  Two others got one year of probation after a Family Court decision.

Three of the seven players had been charged with aggravated sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact, conspiracy to commit aggravated criminal sexual contact, criminal restraint, and hazing for engaging in an act of sexual penetration upon one of the juvenile victims.

One of those defendants and four others were charged with various counts including aggravated assault, conspiracy, aggravated criminal sexual contact, hazing and riot by participating in the attack of some of the victims.

All of the players were suspended from school pending the trial.

None of the coaches have been charged.
