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.
