The Eta Upsilon Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho is facing criminal charges after injuring several pledges who were on-line for the sorority. More details under the hood.
Six members of the Sigma Gamma Rho sorority at Rutgers University in New Brunswick have been arrested and charged with hazing pledges by paddling them and restricting how much they could eat over an eight day period, authorities said today. “At least one victim went to a hospital for non life-threatening injuries,” Rutgers police Lt. Richard Dinan said.
There were at least three victims, but police are still investigating and may identify more victims and more suspects. One victim reported the hazing to police Tuesday, and four sorority members were arrested later that day. Police on Tuesday arrested Vanessa Adegbite, 21, of Jersey City, Kesha Cheron, 20, of Newark, Llana Warner, 20 of Bronx, N.Y. and Joana Bernard, 21, of West Orange. They were charged with aggravated hazing and bail was set at $1,500.
Sigma Gamma Rho is a recognized sorority but the victims were “unofficial pledges” because the hazing did not occur during the university’s recognized pledge period.
Man when is enough enough???
