Assault Charges against Star Academy Football Players Dismissed
by Maurielle Lue
In court, the judge, who mentioned that he played football when he was growing up, said that he was not ready to criminalize the sport. He said even though the boys from Star International Academy embarrassed themselves and the school, they are not criminals.
"This court on these facts ... declines to criminalize football today, and the charges against all the defendants are dismissed," said Judge Mark Plawecki.
In a Dearborn court room, the crowd erupted in cheers and applause. Mothers hugged their sons.
