STROUDSBURG, Pa. - Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of a New York City college fraternity in Monroe County.
The jury found Pi Delta Psi from Baruch College in Manhattan guilty on some charges, but not the most serious, in the death of an 18-year-old pledge in 2013.
Jurors found the fraternity guilty of eight counts, including involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, and hazing.
But jurors found Pi Delta Psi not guilty of 3rd degree murder and voluntary manslaughter, the two most serious charges.
In addition to the fraternity itself, 37 members of Pi Delta Psi were charged in the death of Chung Michael Deng.
Of those 37, four were charged with murder. They pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and are awaiting sentencing.
Investigators say the fraternity rented a house in the Poconos in 2013, when brothers hazed pledges by making them run a "gauntlet."
Officials say Michael Deng lost consciousness after being kicked to the ground.
They say instead of immediately getting Deng medical attention, the brothers waited and didn't take him to the hospital until the next day where he died.
Prosecutors say the fraternity faces fines and suspension of its right to operate. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
A nonprofit that serves people throughout the region is in a serious pinch.Read More »
