GENESEO – The investigation into a possible distribution of OxyContin pills among the varsity football team has ended with three criminal charges for one teenager.
Geneseo Police Chief Eric Osganian confirmed that a 16-year-old is charged with three counts of misdemeanor Endangering the Welfare of a Child for allegedly distributing OxyContin pills to other players, aged 15 and 16, before a game.
The defendant is alleged to have taken the pills from a parent without their knowledge.
Due to the defendant’s age and the likelihood that he will be treated as a youthful offender and have the record of this charge sealed, the GeneseeSun.com is withholding his name.
Due to his family ties to a member of the Geneseo Police Department, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office was present as Geneseo Police conducted each interview.
Officers issued the teen an appearance ticket for a later date.
Superintendent Tim Hayes said that the school dismissed the players subject to the drug investigation from the team, ending the varsity football season and forfeiting all scheduled games.
