Hypnosis deaths leads to settlement
NORTH PORT, FLORIDA- The school board that employed a principal who hypnotized three North Point High students who died settled with the teens' families.
Each will receive $200,000 from the Sarasota County School District. Principal George Kenney admits he hypnotized 16-year-old Wesley McKinley a day before the teen killed himself four-years ago.
An investigation discovered Kenney hypnotized as many as 75 students and staff members from 2006 until the teen died.
One basketball player says he was hypnotized 30 to 40 times by Kenney to improve his concentration.
The settlement closes a bizarre case that unfolded over years.
