Grand jury indictments handed down in fraternal hazing incident


Several interim indictments were handed down by the Calhoun County Grand Jury Wednesday, Oct. 30th.

The indictments came as a result of an investigation that began when Jason Horton came forward with allegations of hazing
practices within the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.

Horton, who was a pledge of the fraternity claims that on Nov. 26th, 2011, several of his fellow pledge brothers as well as himself were alledgedly hazed by fraternity members through mass intakes of alcohol and violent acts.

Calhoun County District Attorney Brian McVeigh explained that interim indictments means that “addictional indictments and/or arrest warrants are likely to come.

The fraternity has been dismissed by JSU.
