Moderator: I could be wrong, and you lawyers and police on site can PLEASE correct me, but this is the first and only time I have heard of hazing materials being sent to the FBI to see if charges are merited. Again, caution: no FBI charges have been filed as of 11:30 a.m. today.
Excerpt from The PSU Collegian
Attorney Karen Muir, representing house manager Braxton Becker, questioned State College police Detective David Scicchitano about the footage. She noted that as the manager, her client had access to the surveillance equipment “closet” in the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house.
Scicchitano testified that it was discovered by police about a week and a half ago that footage had been deleted. At that point, he said he notified Assistant District Attorney Nichole Smith, and the recording equipment was sent to the FBI on Wednesday.
