Katy cheerleaders indicted on hazing charges

Seven former suburban Houston high school varsity cheerleaders face misdemeanor charges accusing them of hazing other cheerleaders.

Harris County District Attorney Kenneth Magidson said Wednesday the ex-cheerleaders restrained several junior varsity cheerleaders, blindfolded them, bound their hands and pushed them into a swimming pool in an off-campus hazing incident.

If convicted, the teens face up to six months in jail and a fine of $2,000.

The teens, from Morton Ranch High School in the Houston suburb of Katy, have not yet appeared in court.

Katy Independent School District police initiated the investigation, which was then referred to the grand jury that issued the indictment.
