(SAYREVILLE, N.J.) — The prosecutor in Middlesex County, New Jersey, will not seek to have any of the seven defendants in the Sayreville High School hazing case tried in adult court, sources told ABC News.
Lawyers for the defendants have already been notified of the decision, which is expected to be formally announced later this week.
Jim O’Neill, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, declined to comment.
The case will remain in Family Court, which is the court in New Jersey that handles juvenile crimes. As such, the case will remain closed to the public and press.
ABC News is one of a group of news organizations that has filed a motion with the court to open the proceedings. That motion has not been decided on yet.
