Following reports last week that two players were cleared of serious hazing charges in connection with a series of locker room incidents, Sayreville Board of Education President Michael Macagnone reportedly fired back during a spirited statement at this week's meeting.

Macagnone said he was certain that many crimes took place in the Sayreville High School football locker room, NJ Advance Media reports.

"I know for a fact that criminal activity occurred in that locker room," Michael Macagnone told parents and residents, according to the report. "I wish I could tell you."

Last week, attorney Richard Klein told the news publication that his client, along with another teammate, were found innocent of the most serious sex charges connected to the alleged hazing during trials earlier this month in Family Court.

That prompted Middlesex County prosecutor Andrew Carey to issue a statement calling Klein's comments "inappropriate and misleading."  Carey said two cases went to trial and four others were resolved.

This week, Macagnone reportedly called Klein's claims "blatently false" and "blatantly untrue."

Because the cases are being heard in Family Court, the players names and exact charges  the entire process from the players names to any details being discussed is protected.
