U.T. fraternity will soon learn whether it must face school and/or criminal penalties
A University of Texas fraternity finds itself on the horns of a dilemma: Facing disciplinary action on campus and facing criminal action downtown.
The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity has been under close scrutiny after one of their pledges, Tyler Cross, fell to his death last November. The coroner says the 18-year-old was drunk at the time. While the Travis County Attorney conducts an investigation into hazing by the frat, U-T’s Don Hale says they have concluded their inquiry.
The County Attorney is looking at Internet files purportedly showing SAE members giving pledges booze and physically abusing them hours before Cross fell off his fifth-floor balcony.
