A person was killed: 22 frat brothers convicted of MISDEMEANORS..thats it

22 “bad apples” were convicted in the 2012 alcohol-related death of Northern Illinois University freshman David Bogenberger.

Five former officers of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity — where the 19-year-old Palatine High School graduate was a pledge — pleaded guilty to reckless conduct, a Class A misdemeanor, as part of negotiated agreements.

James Harvey, 23, of Northfield;

Alexander Jandick, 23, of Naperville;

Steven Libert, 23, of Naperville;

Patrick Merrill, 22, of Boston, Mass.; and

Omar Salameh, 24, of Burbank, were sentenced to 24 months’ conditional discharge, a type of probation.

DeKalb County Judge Thomas Doherty also ordered each of them to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 100 hours of community service.
