Twelve former Florida A&M University band members are now facing more severe charges for the 2011 death of drum major Robert Champion, buy cialis after Florida prosecutors on Monday filed manslaughter counts against them.
Champion died from internal bleeding after receiving a beating that shed light on the famed bands culture of hazing.
Although ten of the ex-band members were charged in May with hazing, a third-degree felony, Champion’s parents had said they were disappointed with the lesser charge. State Attorney Jeff Ashton, who was sworn in as the Orange-Osceola state attorney earlier this year upgraded the charges and decided to make a case against two more of the former band members. The manslaughter carries with it a maximum sentence of 15-years imprisonment under Florida law, while the maximum sentence for hazing would have only been 5 years.
