PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that 11 more men were charged in the Baruch College fraternity hazing death of a freshman in December of 2013. According to the NY Post, the young men were set to be arraigned in a courtroom in Pennsylvania earlier this month. Although eleven more suspects were charged, police plan to charge 37 men total in connection with the unfortunate hazing death of the 19 year old college freshman. Michael Deng, the deceased victim, was "brutally beaten during a hazing ritual at a rented home in Tunkhannock Township, Monroe County." According to the article, police said that Deng was "knocked out" and the frat members neglected to take him to a hospital for an hour. The 19 year old freshman who died was pledging Pi Delta Psi. Now, the eleven men who have been charged are facing hazing, conspiracy and hindering prosecution charges.
Hazing rituals can be dangerous, and sometimes lethal. Cases like the one at hand remind us to educate young adults going to college that sorority and fraternity pledging involving hazing can be risky.
Chris Janish, CEO, commented on the unfortunate hazing incident that resulted in wrongful death, "We are starting to see a national rise in college hazing incidents, resulting in lawsuit filings and large settlement amounts in many cases. The Baruch College incident is one where a lesson needs to be learned that hazing on any level is serious and could result in both civil and criminal penalties against universities and anyone else who may be found liable."
