Pi Kappa Phi

A court hearing was held Tuesday morning for nine Florida State University students facing criminal hazing charges. FSU President John Thrasher is optimistic new Greek life regulations will bring about a cultural change.

The Florida State University student and fraternity pledge who died at an off-campus party last month had a blood alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit. After two days of testimony and interviews from almost 50 people a grand jury says there is enough evidence for charges to be brought in the death of 20-year-old Pi Kappa Phi pledge, Andrew Coffey.
