In brief: High school football players charged in hazing case

ASHLAND, Ore. – Three high school football players charged with attempted sexual assault and hazing after a summer training camp incident will face school sanctions if found guilty.

Results of the six-month-long investigation were made public Thursday against the players, all minors.

The Medford Mail Tribune reported the school suspended its own inquiry when Ashland police were alerted July 9 to the incidents.

Police allege underclassmen teammates were coerced and threatened into committing “embarrassing and degrading” acts in dorm rooms during a football training camp held in June at Linfield College in McMinnville, Ore.

A 17-year-old who was never enrolled in Ashland High School and who no longer lives in Ashland was arrested Tuesday and faces felony charges.

The three football players were charged with five counts of coercion.

Omak man who scalded woman sentenced to prison

A 21-year-old Omak man who scalded an 18-year-old woman with boiling water and beat her with a propane canister has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison.

Daniel Quilochin Fry was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty last April to assault with a dangerous weapon and maiming, the Wenatchee World reported.

The charges were handled by federal authorities because the incidents happened in a house on the Colville Indian Reservation.

The woman told authorities during the investigation that Fry abused her over a period of five months in 2011 when they shared the home. The abuse included locking her in a closet and dousing her with cold water, beatings, choking her, stabbing her in the hand with a knife, and threatening her with a firearm.

The maiming charge comes from Fry forcing her to lie on the floor and then pouring scalding water on her legs and back.
