Public documents released in Chelmsford , NH football hazing

Here is the link.

Abstract: The events at the camp remained a mystery for two years, until Aug. 7 when Lowell attorney Brian Leahey filed a notice of intent to sue the town on behalf of the alleged victim’s family. The Sun has received two copies of the 41-page document — one from the town that was heavily redacted by its legal counsel, Kopelman & Paige, and another unredacted document from an anonymous source.

Leahey’s document, known in legal terms as a presentment letter, describes in graphic detail the alleged hazing incident at the camp in August 2013. It allegedly involved a group of players who carried out a series of harassment and assaults, some sexual in nature, against another player — his client. The players, while not named, are identified by first- and last-name initials.
