(CBS/AP) TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Two defendants have pleaded no contest to reduced charges of misdemeanor hazing in the beating of a Florida A&M University band member Bria Shante Hunter.
Aaron Golson and Sean Hobson then were sentenced Thursday in Tallahassee to 30 days in the Leon County Work Camp followed by 12 months of probation.
They had been charged with felony hazing and battery, but the state dropped the battery charges and Assistant State Attorney Stefanie Walters said medical records did not provide the required proof of serious bodily injury.
Action in the case of a third defendant was delayed.
Police say Hunter was beaten and bruised on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
Golson also is one of 11 former band members charged with felony hazing in the Nov. 19 death of drum major Robert Champion in Orlando.
