Hazing Charges Against Two University Administrators Dismissed

Two administrators at Rider University won the dismissal of charges related to the death of an undergraduate student at a fraternity party.  The administrators, one a Dean of Students and the other responsible for Greek organizations, were charged along with three students with aggravated hazing arising from from ingestion of a large amount of alcohol at a fraternity party that resulted in a blood alcohol level of .426 at the time of death.  A grand jury indicted the two administrators, and the Mercer (N.J.) County Prosecutor's office asked for the dismissal because there was insufficient proof to convict them.  The charges against the three students remain.  An AP story (here) discusses the dismissal.
