2 Frat Brothers Sentenced in Hazing Death

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - Two more former students at California Polytechnic State University have been sentenced to jail for hazing a freshman who died of alcohol poisoning while pledging
a fraternity.

Adam Marszal and Russell Taylor, both 23, pleaded no contest Thursday to misdemeanor hazing and apologized to the parents of Carson Starkey, who was from Austin, Texas.

Starkey was 18. He died in December 2008 after drinking large amounts of alcohol in 90 minutes as part of a hazing ritual at the San Luis Obispo school.

Judge Linda Hurst sentenced Marszal and Taylor to 30 days in jail and three years' probation. She also ordered 40 hours of community service or two presentations on the dangers of alcohol and hazing.

Two other Sigma Alpha Epsilon members pleaded no contest to misdemeanor hazing in June and received similar sentences.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.
