WGRZ says Wilson players found Not Guilty

A Wilson town judge has found two high school baseball players not guilty on all charges against them including hazing, according to a source close involved with the case.

The two student athletes were charged with endangering the welfare of a child, foreable touching and hazing.

The charges were connected to a New York State Police investigation into an alleged hazing incident in the back of the team bus in April of 2008.

On Monday, all charges against two Wilson High School baseball coaches were dropped. The New York State police are also conducting an internal investigation into their handling of the case. (see related story)
