Seneca hazing case from last summer is now closed

Posted July 28, 2011 at 6:00 PM CST:  The last two defendants from the Seneca hazing case pleaded their cases this week in a Crawford County, Kansas court.

Dalton Rainey and Dalton Cummings were both convicted of misdemeanor battery.  Rainey plead guilty to one count.  Cummings plead no contest to three counts.

Both were placed on probation.

The two were part of a group of older high school football players who whipped younger players with the rods from mini blinds.

The incident happened at a football camp at last summer at Pittsburg State.

Posted July 11, 2011 at 4:10 PM CST:  The only teen charged as an adult in the Seneca hazing case pleads guilty to misdemeanors.

Peyton Kinslow was 18 years old when he and other members of the Seneca, Missouri High School football team were accused of hitting teammates with a curtain rod.

The incident occurred at a football camp hosted by Pittsburg State University in June 2010.

Kinslow was originally charged with six felonies, but on Monday he plead guilty to three counts of misdemeanor battery.

At least five other team members had already been convicted of misdemeanor battery in the case.

They have all been given six month suspended sentences and one year's probation.

One teen was acquitted.

All of the teens charged were removed from the football team.
