University statement on new student charges related to Beta Theta Pi

On Nov. 13, Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller filed new charges against 17 individuals allegedly involved in the tragic death of Timothy Piazza. Penn State issued the following statement:

"Our hearts continue to break for the anguish being experienced by the Piazza family, as this shocking and sad story continues to unfold. Student safety is our priority, and we will continue to hold accountable those who are found to have put the well-being of others in jeopardy.

"The Penn State Office of Student Conduct has completed the student conduct investigation and disciplinary process for 32 individuals related to the tragic death of Timothy Piazza at the now-banned Beta Theta Pi fraternity. The University will proceed with additional student conduct investigations, through a process separate and distinct from the criminal process, as appropriate, based on these new charges."
