COTTONWOOD, Ala. (AP) -- An attorney says a judge has dismissed a criminal hazing charge filed against an Ashford teenager.
Attorney Chris Maddox says Geneva County District Court Judge Stephen Smith dismissed the charge on Wednesday against his client, 18-year-old Tyler Matthew McClenny.
McClenny was one of six Cottonwood High students arrested by Geneva County sheriff's officers in April on the misdemeanor hazing charge.
Maddox says his client was innocent of any wrongdoing, and would have been ready for trial had the parties not been able to reach an agreement.
The charges stemmed from an incident on a bus trip back from a baseball game in Geneva County.
The students were required to attend alternative school for 45 days.
