The notice of claim filed by attorney John Torgenson explains that the sixth victim was sexually assaulted on Jan. 10, 2017 during a football training off-season class.
According to the family, the student entered the Hamilton High locker room and was immediately surrounded by football players yelling “fresh meat,” the claim explained. When the student began to change into his workout attire, varsity players reportedly surrounded him while he wore nothing but his underwear.
The alleged victim and his mother then met with a district official to discuss transferring him to a different school, however, after extensive questioning, their request was not immediately approved and the boy remained at the school for several weeks.
He began receiving threats over social media saying “Let’s fight” and “snitch.” A teacher also reportedly questioned him in front of an entire class asking why he and his family went to the district office.
The notice states that as a result of the sexual abuse, his social life has deteriorated and his previously open relationship with his mother has become "non-existent". The student's family says he no longer feels comfortable talking with her and only opens up to his therapist.
The notice of claim is the first step toward filing a lawsuit.
Authorities first launched an investigation in February 2017 after four victims accused Hamilton High football players of molesting them between September 2015 and January 2017 in the team’s locker room.
