BELLEFONTE (AP) — A judge is letting another former Penn State fraternity member serve his sentence on home confinement instead of in jail in the 2017 death of a pledge.

Former Beta Theta Pi member Luke Visser was resentenced Wednesday to 45 days of home confinement and six months of probation, instead of two months to six months in jail.

Centre County Judge Brian Marshall resentenced two other former Beta Theta Pi members last month, changing their jail sentences to home confinement.

Visser pleaded guilty to hazing charges surrounding the 2017 death of sophomore engineering major Tim Piazza of New Jersey.

Twenty-eight members of the now-shuttered fraternity have faced charges. Most pleaded guilty to hazing- and alcohol-related counts and received probation and community service.

The case prompted Pennsylvania to rewrite its anti-hazing law.

PSU, too big to fail. The crap that goes on in these so called, "Institutes of Higher Learning".
I wouldn't send a dog to PSU.
The message here is, if you are the right demographic, you can get away with just about anything without recourse.
