Los Angeles County prosecutors say three former La Puente High School soccer players have been convicted and sentenced in the violent sexual hazing of fellow students last year.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported Thursday that the teens accused of sodomizing other players with a javelin and a broken flagpole have been sentenced to probation or a few months in juvenile camp.

The teens' names haven't been released because they were minors at the time of the crimes, which took place between April and August 2012.

Two of the teens who were 17 at the time of the hazing pleaded no contest to a felony assault charge and a misdemeanor hazing charge. The third pleaded guilty to those charges.

An attorney for the victims could not immediately be reached.
