Hobby and two of his deputies have been slammed with a number of charges, including violation of oath by a public officer, false imprisonment and sexual battery. The sheriff has maintained his innocence, according to UPI.

Additionally, once all claims are resolved and attorney fees paid, the remainder of the settlement will be put into a fund to benefit Worth County High School students. During that time, students were ordered to stand "spread eagle" in the school's gymnasium. And during this search, the lawsuit says the deputies "touched and manipulated students' breasts and genitals, inserted fingers inside girls' bras, and pulled up girls' bras, touching and partially exposing their bare breasts... touched girls' underwear by placing hands inside the waistbands of their trousers or reaching up their dresses...touched girls' vaginal areas through their underwear...cupped or groped boys' genitals and touched their buttocks through their trousers".

The settlement, which is pending approval from U.S. District Judge Leslie J. Abrams, will be dispersed to all students who were present for the search.

The lawsuit is seeking a jury trial to decide damages.
