Florida State Students Charged in Fraternity Death

Florida State Students Charged in Fraternity Death

Pi Kappa Phi had its charter revoked four days later. Florida State does not tolerate hazing, and we are committed to continuing to combat all unsafe and risky practices and behaviors on our campus.

Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said Tuesday that their investigation was done with the assistance of Florida State University Police.

All nine are students at the school and will be charged with "college hazing causing injury or death" - a third-degree felony - in 20-year-old Andrew Coffey's death. Leon County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant Grady Jordan told the station that all nine men have turned themselves in. "The state attorney doesn't issue presentments. It's a tragedy", Pumphrey said.

A pledge attempted to awaken Coffey to no avail.

Andrew Coffey, 20, died November 3rd at an off campus house after a night of drinking.

The suspects, all between the ages of 20 and 22 years old, face charges of college hazing causing injury or death in the case of Andrew Coffey, a FSU fraternity pledge who died of alcohol poisoning on November 3, the Tallahassee Police Department said in a statement Tuesday. A medical examiner later determined Coffey's blood alcohol level to be.447 - more than five times the legal limit to drive.

According to grand jury testimony, a fellow Florida State University fraternity pledge found Coffey unresponsive at the party, but instead of calling 911, the pledge contacted other members of the fraternity.

The Nov. 3 party introduced pledges to their big brothers and included drinking large amounts of liquor straight from the bottle.

At least a dozen pledges vomited that night, and Coffey passed out and had to be carried to a couch, prosecutors alleged, saying no one was "forced" to drink but it was clear pledges risked ostracism if they didn't. He was then taken inside of the living room and was snoring loudly while others played pool.

The grand jury decried what it called the "overall glib attitude of Andrew Coffey's so-called brothers towards this very serious matter", as well as the fraternity's "culture of secrecy". Most refused to answer questions and only two of the fraternity's leaders agreed to speak with investigators. "I've never had a case where I had too much information". ABC News reported that FSU shut down all Greek activities in the week following Coffey's death and Pi Kappa Phi announced that they would be shutting down their FSU chapter.

"I think at this point we have enough understanding", said Campbell. "We are trying to find truths", said Campbell.
