The defendants — Darleta McKennis-Weems and Jessica Reynolds, both 23, and 22-year-old Ashley Moore, all of Cape Girardeau — were ordered to perform 40 hours of community service each.
Prosecuting Attorney Morley Swingle said he agreed to drop misdemeanor hazing charges in exchange for the guilty pleas on the assault charges.
The women were involved in hazing a prospective member by forcing her to eat a mixture of food taken from a garbage can, striking her with a closed fist and spraying her in the face with a liquid.
