ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — Ashland police say three members of the high school football team and a fourth youth have been charged after an investigation into hazing that involved attempted sexual assaults at a summer football camp.

The police said Thursday all four were charged with coercion, two with conspiracy and one, who is not a student at the high school, with attempted sexual penetration with a finger.

The Ashland Daily Tidings reported (http://bit.ly/ZxYBh9) the fourth youth was a 17-year-old who had practiced with the team and attended a football camp with the team last June at Linfield College.

An Ashland police officer says that investigators substantiated four incidents of attempted sexual penetration.
