Culture of hazing led to boy being sexually assaulted by player at Reed-Custer football practice, lawsuit alleges


November 30, 2018

Employees of a Will County high school failed to prevent the sexual assault of an incoming freshman student during a football team hazing ritual and then inadequately responded to the incident, according to a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday by the youth’s parents on behalf of their son.

The suit, filed against Reed-Custer Community Unit School District 255 in Braidwood and six employees, also alleges that the student was harassed by students and at least one teacher after the hazing incident was reported to police.
