JSU alters band members’ punishment in hazing

Jackson State University has altered its punishment for students accused of hazing freshmen marching band members, including reducing the length of their suspension.

The 22 students, who last week were sentenced to two years of suspension from school, now face one-year suspensions or have been reinstated in school after appealing.

The initial suspensions followed a campus police investigation into allegations that freshmen members of the Sonic Boom of the South’s percussion section were beaten at an off-campus event Sept. 18. Full story.
