Charges Likely Today in Florida A&M Hazing Death

May 2, 2012

Authorities expect to make several charges -- some of them felonies -- today in the investigation into the hazing death last year of a student at Florida A&M University, The Orlando Sentinel reported. Several people will be charged. The student who died was in the university's marching band, famous for its performances and also blamed for years for hazing incidents. On Tuesday, three more members of a special committee formed by the university to study hazing issues resigned, the Sentinel reported. The university created a panel of national experts on the issue, but a majority of members have now quit, citing Florida's open meetings laws, which would have prevented them from meeting in private.
