Wis. Prep Wrestlers In Court On Misconduct Charges

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) — Four Wood County high school wrestlers charged with disorderly conduct after being accused of sexually harassing a younger teammate entered not guilty pleas Monday.

The Lincoln High School students are charged with disorderly conduct for a locker room incident involving a freshman wrestler. Prosecutors say Devin Peterson, Kasey Einerson and Ryland Lubeck, all 17, as well as 18-year-old Zak Benitz danced naked in front of the boy and touched him with their genitals. The 15-year-old told authorities he was harassed about five to ten times during the 2010-2011 wrestling season.

WSAW-TV says Peterson and Einerson appeared in court Monday, while attorneys for Benitz and Lubeck appeared on their behalf. The wrestling coach, Scott Benitz, father of one of the accused boys, had no comment.

  • Just sick

    Just ignorant young men

    Obviously the one guy out of the group that encouraged the action of being naked, is PURELY a closet gay.

    Why else would you do that? Basically you’re saying, “hey lets get naked and rub our junk on this guy” while inside his head he’s thinking ‘I just want to see your guys junk!’

    • What???

      The ironic part is that when they were doing this they were probably calling the younger boy gay.

    I’m shocked, shocked to learn that there are closeted gays on high school wrestling teams!

    If gay marriage were allowed this would just be one big happy family. The parents never taught them that shaking more than 3 times is playing with it. Were their names Neil and Bob, or is that what they did?

    Would this be considered a ‘hate crime’??
