Wyoming high school students involved in hazing incident suspended, facing expulsion

CASPER, Wyo. — A group of Riverton high school students have been suspended and are facing expulsion over a January hazing or bullying incident on a school bus, the school district’s superintendent said, as various lawyers look into the incident, which occurred in Natrona County.

Fremont County School District No. 25 Superintendent said the district is waiting for a Natrona County court ruling before district officials proceed with the expulsion process. He declined to say how many students are suspended, but he previously told the Star-Tribune that three Riverton high school students were facing expulsion while a fourth faced suspension.

He said “the accused” had asked the district for the names of the victims, which the district’s school board refused to provide. The accused have since gone to court to obtain the identities, he said. It’s unclear how far advanced that process is; court documents were not available earlier this week, and a call to an attorney believed to be involved was not returned Thursday.

Simultaneously, the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office has been forwarded details of the incident. Natrona County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Aaron Shatto declined to provide details of the case because it involved juveniles, but he said law enforcement investigated it and have sent the results to District Attorney Michael Blonigen.
