Wilson High Baseball Coaches Arrested in Hazing Incident
By WBFO News
Buffalo, NY – The varsity and junior varsity baseball coaches at Wilson High School were arrested Tuesday and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, in connection with a recent alleged sexual abuse of some players on the team bus.
Thomas Baia, 40, varsity coach, and 35- year-old William Atlas, who led the JV team, were released on their own recognizance. They have been suspended with pay from their teaching duties. They had already been suspended from coaching, and the Wilson baseball schedule has been cancelled for the rest of the season.
Three unnamed students had been arrested earlier this week on felony sexual abuse and misdemeanor child endangerment charges.
