Charges against all but one hazing suspects dropped


CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) – Charges have been dismissed against some of the people involved in the UCA student hazing case in early March.

According to Faulkner County Prosecutor Cody Hiland, Christopher Ozuna, the person who actually carried out the hazing, was convicted of four counts of hazing, and one count of third-degree battery.

Ozuna has been sentenced to 12 months of probation, community service, and restitution--$2,000 from fraternity fees. The majority of the restitution was paid, and the others originally charged paid a portion of it.

Hiland said Ozuna was expelled from UCA, which is required because of the charges. However, since he had never been in trouble before and was close to graduation, Ozuna was ordered to enroll in another college within a certain time frame to get his degree.

Faulkner County to receive StormReady designation


CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - The National Weather Service says it will recognize Faulkner County as a "StormReady" community next week.

Forecasters said that with the deaths in last April's tornado at Mayflower and Vilonia, the county now ranks fourth in tornado fatalities statewide since 1950.

A ceremony is scheduled for next Wednesday.

The "StormReady" program recognizes communities that have made a commitment to save lives and property when bad weather strikes. Forecasters noted that many Vilonia residents were able to take shelter in a community safe room. Nationally, 2,200 communities have the designation.

To be recognized as StormReady, a county must maintain a 24-hour emergency operations center and have several ways to receive weather warnings and alert the public. They also must conduct community preparedness programs and address bad weather in formal emergency plans.
