Judge expected to rule next month on NIU hazing charge

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) — A DeKalb County judge is expected to decide next month whether felony hazing charges against former Northern Illinois University fraternity members are unconstitutional.

Defense attorneys claim Illinois’ hazing statute is too vague and asked a judge Thursday to drop the charges related to the 2012 death of freshman David Bogenberger.

The (DeKalb) Daily Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1rth12l ) Associate Judge John McAdams is expected to issue a decision May 29.

The ex-members of Pi Kappa Alpha were charged after the 19-year-old’s death. An autopsy showed his blood-alcohol level was about five times the legal limit for driving.

The state’s hazing law makes it illegal to require students to perform any unauthorized act that causes bodily harm to be accepted to a group connected with a school.
