MILTON, Vt. (AP) - A former Milton High School football player linked to an alleged hazing scandal in 2011 has apologized in court to the family of a former teammate.

The teammate, 17-year-old Jordan Preavy, had taken his own life in August 2012. Family members say he was a victim.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1tSIrUP) in court Thursday, 20-year-old Ryan Carlson said he should have intervened and stopped it.

Carlson is the third former Milton football player accused in a hazing scandal to accept a plea deal. He pleaded guilty in Vermont Superior Court in Burlington to simple assault.

He was sentenced to 18 months on probation and to attend an anti-bullying conference. Carlson also agreed to testify another teammate who pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempted sexual assault.
