Today will release new info. on PSU hazing trial

Penn State Frat House

The footage in question led to new charges against 12 people in the case, ranging from felony aggravated assault to misdemeanors.

The newly recovered basement video could be a game-changer in that it shows Piazza being served at least 18 drinks within one hour and 22 minutes from fraternity brothers, according to Parks Miller.

The new defendants face charges that include involuntary manslaughter, assault, hazing and furnishing alcohol to minors, all related to additional alcohol hazing prosecutors said was caught on cameras in the basement of the fraternity house in the Pennsylvania town of State College.

Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller is holding a press conference today to announce the results of the investigation into the Beta Theta Pi basement surveillance allegedly deleted by a fraternity member.

At the news conference Monday, Piazza's father said he is committed to pursuing the charges against the members of the fraternity, which has been shut down by Penn State.

According to Parks Miller, the basement video clearly shows a continuation of the hazing activity previously captured upstairs during the gauntlet.

A lawyer for Joseph Ems, who had previously faced a reckless-endangerment charge that was dismissed by the district judge, said he plans to seek dismissal of the three fresh charges against his client: hazing, furnishing alcohol to a minor and an alcohol violation.

"They claimed we don't know what else happened other than what was seen in the upstairs video and we don't know what happened in the basement", Jim Piazza said.

"The videotape is awful and it is gruesome", Tom Kline, an attorney for the Piazza family, told CBS News in June of the initial footage.

At a lengthy preliminary hearing over the initial charges in the case last summer, defense attorneys argued that Piazza's death was a tragic accident. "These charges should've never been filed".

The lead detective had said the cameras in the basement did not record the night of February 2-3, according to a grand jury, but Miller said the detective pursued the question further and got help from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to restore the missing footage.

Over the rest of that evening, fraternity members were recorded pouring liquid on him, strapping a loaded backpack to him and taking other ineffective or counterproductive steps to deal with his condition. They dumped water on his face and slapped him in an apparent attempt to wake him, to no avail, the report said. When one pledge tried to intervene, insisting they get Piazza some help, he was shoved into a wall and told the brothers had it under control. The investigation into the marijuana sales began in November, almost three months before Piazza's death, the Centre Daily Times of State College reported. When a fraternity member finally called 911 for help, Piazza's skin had turned gray, the report found.

It would be almost another six hours before an ambulance was called for Piazza, who ultimately died with traumatic brain injuries and a ruptured spleen.

The teen's mother, Evelyn Piazza, added, "Your life is too important to put it on the line for a brotherhood or a sisterhood".
