WEST OLIVE — The father of a victim in the Coopersville Schools hazing incident earlier this year criticized Ottawa County prosecutors today for not pursuing harsher sentences against four teens convicted of gross indecency.
“As far as I’m concerned, they did us no justice at all,” the father said. “If they were our attorneys, I would have fired them a long time ago.”
The father spoke as Ottawa County Family Court Referee Barbara Forman issued a sentence of at least six months probation and 26 hours of community service for Robert Miller, 17, the last teen to be sentenced after all four entered pleas to gross indecency.
Parents of two teen victims who were assaulted in the school locker room wanted detention and group counseling for the suspects.
