STROUDSBURG, Pa. - Four men from New York City and their fraternity will be sentenced Monday in the death of a 19-year-old pledge.
Baruch College freshman Chun "Michael" Deng died after a hazing ritual in Monroe County back in 2013.
He was blindfolded, forced to wear a heavy backpack, then repeatedly tackled. He was knocked unconscious and later died at a hospital.
Police initially charged 37 people in his death.
Prosecutors are seeking a fine for the fraternity and a 20-year ban from the state.
Deng's mother has prepared a statement to read at the sentencing. She wrote that the pain feels like a cat clawing and scratching at her heart.
