CHARGES IN LOCKER ROOM INCIDENT
Jonathan Martin and Nigel Dixon, both 17 and senior football players from Baldwin High School, were charged as adults and arraigned after allegedly holding down and sexually abusing a freshman classmate. The victim, 14 years old and a junior varsity football player, was changing for practice around 3:30 pm on November 8th when the lights went off and he was held down. Martin and Dixon then sexually touched him while he resisted. They were arraigned yesterday on charges of first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. They were being held at Nassau County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash bail. If they are found guilty, they could serve up to 7 years in prison. Their next court appearance is Monday.
