Link to TV story with credit: Seven RIT students charged with hazing and unlawfully dealing with a child were in court Tuesday afternoon. The charges stem from an off campus rugby party last month where six underage members of the rugby club nearly drank themselves to death. They were found unconscious and hospitalized with alcohol poisoning. Police say the rugby club called it “rookie day”. The charges are misdemeanors and the seven RIT students face up to a year in jail. An eighth student is also charged but was not in Henrietta court today. The six underage students who were hospitalized also could face charges.
