Remaining Eight Beta Theta Pi Brothers Arraigned, Bail Set At $50,000

The remaining eight Beta Theta Pi brothers who were scheduled to be arraigned this week surrendered to law enforcement Tuesday afternoon at Bellefonte’s Centre County Courthouse.

The initial 10 brothers were arraigned and released on bail Friday after the charges came down.

Bail for each of the eight arraigned brothers is set at $50,000, according to the Centre Daily Times.

Lars Kenyon and Michael Angelo Schiavone are facing the charges of recklessly endangering another person, hazing, furnishing alcohol to minors, and unlawful acts relative to liquor, which are the same as Craig Heimer and Parker Jax Yochim, who were arraigned on Friday and released on $50,000 unsecured bail.

Ed Gilmartin, Ryan McCann, Lucas Rockwell, Braxton Becker, and Ryan Foster face tampering with evidence charges. Joseph Ems was charged with recklessly endangering another person.

Eight — Brendan Young, Daniel Casey, Jonah Neuman, Nick Kubera, Michael Bonatucci, Gary Dibileo, Luke Visser, and Joe Sala — were charged with involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault, among other charges. They were each released on $100,000 unsecured bail on Friday.

Per the Centre Daily Times, the fraternity itself has not been arraigned on charges of involuntary manslaughter, hazing, furnishing alcohol to minors, and unlawful acts relative to liquor due to a clerical error.
