The four former players of the Donna High School football team that were indicted for felony sexual assault and indecency with a child appeared before a judge today and were formally arraigned…
Derick Anthony Castillo, 18; Jacob Leal, 17; Manuel Josue Rivera, 19; and Raynardo Jaime Magallanes, 19, appeared separately with their attorneys before 332nd state District Judge Mario Ramirez. All pleaded not guilty to accusations they sexually assaulted five teenage boys under the age of 17 during four separate incidents from Aug. 7, 2004, to Feb. 15, 2005. They were indicted on the charges Sept. 8 and each now faces an Oct. 11 pre-trial hearing date.
The charges stem from a hazing incident where the four are accused of assaulting freshmen ages 14 and 15 by slapping around their genitals and trying to insert their latex-gloved fingers into their asses. I can’t wait to hear the defense.
