Camden Military exonerated in hazing trial
A federal jury exonerated Camden Military Academy (CMA) on all counts in a nearly four-week long hazing trial after deliberating for only 90 minutes Tuesday night. A former student cadet, known only as “JBC” alleged in a 2011 lawsuit that he had been repeatedly beaten and raped by other cadets at the school. In the lawsuit, JBC -- who was 13 when the alleged incidents took place in 2008 and is now 18 -- claimed one cadet had raped him, another had sodomized him and that he had been repeatedly bullied.
