Over the past month, we have blogged about some of the developments in the alleged hazing case involving five former Blackfoot High School athletes. The Bingham County Attorney now says he intends to drop some of the felony charges filed against five former Blackfoot High School athletes accused of hazing classmates after reviewing the case with a witness. In addition, the prosecutor says he will seek to dismiss 2 of the four felony complaints of forcible sexual penetration with a foreign object against Nathan Walker and Logan Chidester. The prosecutor says he also intends to dismiss single complaints of the same charge Tyson Katseanes and Anthony Clarke. Smith may also file a plea agreement with Katseanes to plead guilty to misdemeanor principal to battery.
