Drunk Sober High
Tim Bream, the former live-in adviser for Beta Theta Pi fraternity, will not face a perjury charge for his testimony at a preliminary hearing in the case.
Ryan Burke pleaded guilty to hazing and alcohol charges for his role in Tim Piazza's death on Wednesday.
He would be the first defendant in the case to plead guilty to charges for playing a role in the alcohol-fueled fraternity initiation event that led to Piazza's death.
The charges against Braxton Becker and Joshua Kurczewski, stemming from the February 2017 death of fraternity pledge Timothy Piazza, were among 45 counts against 12 defendants dismissed by District Judge Steven Lachman.
The Office of the Attorney General said it will continue to push for this case to be heard by a higher court, but did not specify what its next move would be.
"Our son’s face, and the faces of other young men whose lives were lost to a similar fate, are recognizable — for all the wrong reasons. We need reform. What happened in 2017 must never happen again."
