One of two students involved in a hazing incident at Towson University was found guilty, but won’t go to jail.
According to WBAL-TV, 21-year-old Alexander Cantor was found guilty of hazing in connection with the July fraternity event. He was found not guilty of a second charge of reckless endangerment. Cantor was sentenced to six months’ probation and 100 hours of community service.
During the incident, a pledge of TKE was allegedly forced to eat cat food and drink an “unknown caustic substance” that made him sick. The substance resulted in the student being hospitalized, and damaged his tongue and internal organs. In their initial report, police alleged that Cantor tried to cover up the frat’s role in the event, including removing TKE items from his dorm while he was in the hospital.
Evan Francis, who was also charged in the incident, was given probation in the fall and charges were dropped.
The TKE chapter was issued a 5-year ban after the arrest.
