Two FAMU Band Members Admit Hazing

Two members of the Florida A&M University marching band admitted Thursday to a hazing last year that led to the hospitalization of a first-year band member. Aaron Golson and Sean Hobson, who both pleaded to misdemeanor hazing, were ordered to serve a year of probation and to report for thirty days to a work camp. The lawyer for 18-year-old Bria Shante Hunter, the clarinetist who was hazed by the two men, said “the family is happy with this, an admission and accountability.” The hazing took place at the off-campus residence of fellow marching band member James R. Harris, III, though Harris was allegedly in another room while the hazing was taking place and stopped it when he saw it.
