Final Five Cheerleaders Get Off
The last five of the seven Morton Ranch High cheerleaders who were indicted for hazing hijinks are getting the same nice deal that a pair of them got earlier, the DAs office has just announced.
The girls are 17-year-old Kelly Buffa, Kirsten Davis and Madison Tanner and 18-year-old Hannah Cochran and Meigan Goff.
The five will be in "pretrial diversion" -- if they obey the laws, do 60 hours of community work and write letters of apology, the charges will be dropped.
The girls had faced misdemeanor charges involving their friendly tradition of bounding up newbies in lawn chairs, blindfolding them and throwing them in a pool. (It's a cheerleader thing, apparently.)
