Kalamazoo County prosecutor Jeff Getting said three former Lakeside Academy staff members are officially charged after allegedly restraining the 16-year-old who died in their care a few days later.

Michael Mosley, Zachary Solis and Heather McLogan are facing involuntary manslaughter and multiple involuntary child abuse charges.

Mosley and Solis are accused of using an illegal restraint that led to Fredericks' death, while McLogan is accused of failing to get him medical attention.

No court dates are set at this time, but Mosley and Solis are facing up to 35 years in prison and McLogan is facing up to 25 years in prison.

The state pulled Lakeside Academy's license last Thursday.

Fredericks' family filed a lawsuit against Lakeside Academy on Monday.
