Former Wheaton football player pleads guilty in hazing case
WHEATON, Ill. â€” One of five former Wheaton College football players arrested on felony charges after an alleged hazing incident of another player has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery charges.
Noah Spielman, 21, entered his plea Thursday in DuPage County court after prosecutors agreed to dismiss nine counts of felony charges.
Spielman was sentenced to one year of conditional discharge and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service â€” 25 hours of which must be spent talking to youths about the dangers of hazing.
Spielman â€”the son of former Ohio State and NFL linebacker Chris Spielman â€” and four teammates were arrested last year in connection with a 2016 incident in which they allegedly duct-taped Charles Nagy and dumped him half-naked in a nearby park.
