Ten Beta Theta Pi Brothers Arraigned And Released On Unsecured Bail

10 members of Beta Theta Pi charged in the death of Timothy Piazza case were arraigned on Friday at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte.

The eight charged with misdemeanor involuntary manslaughter and felony aggravated assault — Brendan Young, Daniel Casey, Jonah Neuman, Nick Kubera, Michael Bonatucci, Gary Dibileo, Luke Visser, and Joe Sala — were released on $100,000 unsecured bail.

Other charges brought against these individuals include simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, furnishing alcohol to minors, and unlawful acts relative to liquor.

Two others — Craig Heimer and Parker Jax Yochim — were released on $50,000 unsecured bail after charges of recklessly endangering another person, hazing, furnishing alcohol to minors, and unlawful acts relative to liquor were brought against them.

Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said others charged will be arraigned next week. There are still eight others yet to be arraigned.

Of those eight, Lars Kenyon and Michael Angelo Schiavone face the same charges of Craig Heimer and Parker Jax Yochim. Ed Gilmartin, Ryan McCann, Lucas Rockwell, Braxton Becker, and Ryan Foster face tampering with evidence charges, and Joseph Ems will be charged with recklessly endangering another person.

Centre County Judge Thomas Kistler set bail conditions for those charged during the arraignment, which include avoiding the use of alcohol and non-prescription drugs, as well as staying in their home states, according to PennLive.
