WAYNE - Seven Wayne Hills high school football players who were suspended from a state championship game have been sentenced to probation for charges stemming from the beating of two teens. None of them have been sentenced to jail time.

The players were charged with aggravated assault for an incident last year in which two Wayne Valley High School students were beaten after a Halloween party.

Each player reportedly pleaded guilty to simple assault in order to be allowed to enter a juvenile probation program, after which the charges could be expunged or erased.

Charges against one player were dismissed and a ninth was placed in an adult probation program.

The case divided residents over whether or not the suspensions were fair. Wayne Hills went on to win the championship game.
