FRESNO, California — Two men have been sentenced to jail in the 2012 hazing of a Central California fraternity pledge who drank 37 shots of hard liquor and died.
The Fresno Bee reported (http://bit.ly/1qLl9NO ) Tuesday that 30-year-old Leonard Louis Serrato was sentenced to 90 days, and 26-year-old Aaron Joseph Raymo received 30 days. A judge also ordered the former Theta Chi members to a three-month work program and probation.
The two pleaded no contest to hazing Fresno State University student and Theta Chi pledge Philip Dhanen. Authorities say the 18-year-old's blood-alcohol content was more than four times the legal limit when he died.
The local president of the fraternity, 23-year-old Daniel Woodward Baker, was also sentenced to similar hazing charges in July.
The death led the fraternity to revoke the local chapter's charter.
