DCFS substantiates Maine West hazing charges
February 10, 2013 (DES PLAINES, Ill.) (WLS) -- Hazing charges against two suburban high school coaches have been substantiated in a state investigation.
The soccer coaches at Maine West High School had already been fired.
Several players said they had been sodomized by teammates.
The new findings by the Department of Children and Family Services concluded one coach is guilty of abuse and neglect and the other of neglect.
Varsity coach Michael Divincenzo and freshman coach Emilio Rodriguez say they knew nothing about the hazing.
