The Chapter claims that blame was placed on Beta Theta Pi for Piazza's death in order to shift the focus away from Penn State and its failure to provide students with a safe environment.
More than two years after the February 2017 death of Penn State fraternity pledge Timothy Piazza at Beta Theta Pi fraternity, the first trial in the case began Tuesday.
Joshua Kurczewski and Michael Bonatucci will now receive intermediate punishment, with their jail sentences switched to house arrest.
At the end of the pilot period, the practice is set to be re-evaluated by that year's IFC executive board and chapter presidents.
Former Beta Theta Pi fraternity brother Luke Visser is requesting a jail sentence reduction and/or house arrest following the 2017 hazing death of then-Penn State sophomore Tim Piazza.
The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office recommended more than $220,000 in restitution for the Piazza family following their son Tim's death related to a hazing incident at the Beta Theta Pi house in February 2017.
