Sentencing delayed in West Potomac High School baseball hazing case

The Commonwealth Attorney's Office has confirmed to FOX 5 that two former West Potomac High School baseball players who were supposed to be sentenced Friday had their sentencing delayed.

The delay was a result of a request for a continuance on behalf of the defense, to which the judge agreed.

The two players convicted several months ago have not been identified because they are juveniles, but both pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge of hazing, according to a source.

FOX 5 confirmed that the assault involved the two players attempting to insert a baseball bat into a part of the victim's body. A source told FOX 5 the incident did not result in serious injuries.

FOX 5 previously reported that the incident involved a victim shoved into a locker and urinated on by at least one player.

Fairfax County police investigated the case beginning in March when it was reported by a staff member at the school - although it happened in 2016.

The head coach and an assistant coach both resigned after the incident came to light, yet Fairfax County Public Schools said the head coach's resignation had nothing to do with the hazing case.

It's unclear when the two players will eventually be sentenced.

Hazing is a class 1 misdemeanor under Virginia law, which is punishable by confinement in jail for not more than 12 months and a fine of not more than $2,500. It is unclear if their punishment would be different as juveniles.
