9 men indicted in hazing case at Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN -- Nine men have been indicted in a fraternity hazing case on charges they beat two Youngstown State University pledges to the point that they wound up hospitalized.

A Youngstown State sophomore, Breylon Stubbs, 22, told a judge last month that he and a friend, Resean Yancey, 20, were beaten during off-campus rituals for the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity in January and February. Pledges were beaten with fists, a paddle, and a wire clothes hanger, Mr. Stubbs said.

The nine men were indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury on two counts each of felonious assault. The defendants were released on bond.

The university suspended the fraternity for 15 years for the hazing. The school's Student Judicial Board also imposed a 10-year probation period after the suspension.
