Three members of a fraternity at California State University at Chico have been sentenced to 30 days in jail in connection with the drinking death of an 18-year-old.
Pi Kappa Phi President Brandon Bettar and members Richard DeLuna and Sam Dobbyn, all 21, pleaded no contest Monday to a misdemeanor charge of furnishing alcohol to a minor causing death.
The men begin their sentences next month and are expected to apply to serve their time on nights and weekends.
They were charged in connection with the Oct. 7 death of Andrew Heideman, 18, a freshman member of the fraternity. Police reports show that Heideman died after a party where he tried to drink a bottle of brandy.
