Former Fraternity Members Sentenced

By  | 

Five former members of the Chi Psi fraternity at the University of Colorado have pleaded guilty to providing alcohol to a minor, following the drinking death of an 18-year-old pledge from Dallas last fall.

Nineteen-year-old Frank Darden, 20-year-olds Austin Brooks, Thomas Tankersley and Alan Williams, and 21-year-old Patrick Wall each received sentences requiring them to perform 100 hours of community service.

Lynn "Gordie" Bailey Junior was a C-U freshman and a Chi Psi pledge found dead inside the fraternity house September 17th.

A police affidavit indicates Bailey and 26 other pledges were taken to the mountains the night before, given bottles of whiskey and wine, and told no one was leaving until the whiskey was gone.

Seven other ex-Chi Psi members are slated to appear in court on the same charges next month.

Chi Psi's national headquarters in Hendersonville, Tennessee shut down the C-U chapter shortly after Bailey's death.
