Hazing Charges Dismissed for Rider Administrators

Prosecutor Backs Off Rider Case

A county prosecutor in New Jersey will reportedly ask a judge to dismiss charges filed against two Rider University administrators in the hazing death of a Phi Kappa Tau pledge.

Earlier this summer, the prosecutor charged the fraternity's president, two brothers and the university's dean of students and director of Greek Life for the April death of pledge Gary DeVercelly. All five were charged with aggravated assault.

DeVervelly died after he reportedly drank three quarters of a bottle of vodka in just 15 minutes at a Wednesday night party at the fraternity's house.

Charges against the three brothers of Phi Kappa Tau still stand.
