4 student expulsions lifted in hazing probe
ORLANDO | Four students who were expelled from Florida A&M University for their role in what is thought to be the hazing death of a marching band member have returned to classes because the investigation is not finished, school officials said Wednesday.
The status of band director Julian White also changed. He had faced termination Dec. 22 but is now on administrative leave with pay, university attorney David Self said during a break in meetings of the school’s board of trustees.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement asked the university to stop any disciplinary action until a criminal investigation into the death of Robert Champion is completed. Detectives said hazing played a role in his Nov. 19 death. He died aboard a band bus after a football game against rival Bethune-Cookman University. Witnesses said he vomited before becoming unresponsive.
The famed Marching 100 band has been shuttered as the death is investigated by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the university and Florida’s higher-education governing body.
