H.S. Wrestlers Charged With Sexual Harassment 

H.S. Wrestlers Charged With Sexual Harassment 


Four wrestlers on Wisconsin's state champion high school wrestling team are facing sexual harassment charges for allegedly targeting another member of their team in the locker room.

A freshman wrestler from Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids approached police about repeated incidents over the course of the school year. The 15-year-old said the older wrestlers, ages 17 and 18, used their genitals to smack him on his leg on several occasions. Another time, the wrestlers backed him into a corner, while one of the boys placed his genitals on the freshman's rear.

He told the police that he once had to climb into a locker just to avoid being harassed by them.

The suspects, Ryan Lubeck, Zachary Benitz, Kasey Einerson, and Devin Peterson, face fines up to $1,000 or up to 90 days in jail.
