CLARION, Iowa (AP) - The first trial related to allegations of hazing at a northern Iowa high school has been scheduled for February.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1OFnIMH) an 18-year-old accused of hazing freshmen on the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows football team recently pleaded not guilty to sexual abuse charges.

His trial is scheduled for Feb. 9.

Two other students are also charged in the case. A 17-year-old wants his case transferred to juvenile court, and the lawyer for the 16-year-old said he is considering a similar request.

All three teens who were charged have been expelled from school.

Superintendent Bob Olson says the district has taken appropriate action since the incident. All locker rooms are now kept closed unless there is adult supervision.
