Cheerleaders punished for putting condoms in players' goody bags

WHARTON, Texas, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Texas high school cheerleaders were benched for putting condoms in the varsity football players' goody bags, district officials said.

The cheerleaders put the condoms in the bags a week ago, the Wharton Independent School District said.

The district said the incident was a violation of the student code of conduct. The girls received a one-day school suspension and were banned from Friday's game.

Some parents said the punishment was too harsh.

"If they did that, it was just a joke," Teresa Holmes, a parent, said. "They need to go on with that and let children be children."

The district said in a statement the punishments are based on state law and are intended to teach students proper behavior.
