Parker Wrestlers Allegedly Hazed At Camp

February 28, 2007, 6:00 PM by Lou Raguse

A former teammate testifying against 17-year-old Jerome Hunt in his juvenile court proceedings says he didn't tell anyone about Hunt touching him until after a July wrestling camp.

The boy says Hunt subjected him and other Parker wrestlers to hazing while the boys stayed together in University of Nebraska, Lincoln, dorm rooms.

And he says that hazing was the catalyst for him and several others coming forward with accusations of Hunt using a hazing technique called "checking the oil," which consists of jamming fingers into a person's rectum.

Here are examples of what the boys accuse Hunt of doing at wrestling camp:

*Defecating in someone's dresser drawer.

*Throwing or smashing eggs on multiple teammates.

*Smashing ground beef onto a boy's head as he got out of the shower.

*Locking a boy in his dorm room, threatening him, and forcing him to eat a "meat product."

*Urinating in Gatorade bottle and putting it back in the refrigerator.

Prosecutors are using these allegations as evidence that Hunt bullies teammates, and that the sexual abuse during wrestling practices did not happen accidentally.
