The Houston Chronicle is reporting Monday that five ex-members of the Morton Ranch High School varsity cheerleader squad in Katy were given probation and won't face trial on hazing charges.
The resolution was announced by Harris County District Attorney Kenneth Magidson, the paper reported.
The five agreed to the "pretrial diversion program," a form of probation. The newspaper identified them as Kelly Buffa, 17, Kirsten Davis, 17, Madison Tanner, 17, Hannah Cochran, 18, and Meigan Goff, 18.
Two other girls, a former cheerleader and a former mascot, previously had accepted the same probation terms. The seven were accused of pushing bound and blindfolded junior varsity cheerleaders into a swimming pool in July.
