Judge sets contempt hearing for Penn State football trainer Tim Bream

Judge sets contempt hearing for Penn State football trainer Tim Bream

The preliminary hearing involves the since-closed Beta Theta Pi fraternity and 16 of its members. Others face lesser charges, including evidence tampering, hazing, reckless endangerment and alcohol offenses.

Owing to the large number of defendants in the case and the volume of charges against them, the preliminary hearing was spread over five days in the span of three months.

"We hope at the end of the day that these individuals are held over that there is a trial and a jury will decide whether this prosecution is successful and I predict it will be", said Kline.

Although a contempt hearing is issued, Bream would have the right to plead the Fifth Amendment.

Attorney Karen Muir, representing house manager Braxton Becker, questioned State College police Detective David Scicchitano about the footage.

Bream served as house manager for the Beta Theta Pi fraternity in 2016 and 2017. He suffered severe head and abdominal injuries.

Ambrose argued that Bream was aware of the subpoena and avoided it.

A couple of days earlier, the Shia Waqf Board told the apex court that a mosque could be built near the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. We can't wait for translations", the bench said.

One defense attorney suggested that Bream might have "personally approved of the gauntlet".

"And you didn't believe him, did you?"

"He was the captain of the ship", Ambrose said. "Until then, this case is not about Mr. Bream".

Kelly said Bream's role brings the charges brought against Heimer into question, while Parks Miller countered it merely means Bream could face charges if there is evidence to support the allegations, pennlive reported. He testified that one of the defendants - a man he did not name - is suspected of erasing footage the morning of February 6, and charges may be filed.

But there was no video from the basement, where Piazza convened with others after the ceremony.

She suggested that the footage would not have been deleted "unless it shows culpability toward some crime".
