The University of Southern Mississippi Police served indictments to 10 Southern Miss students today who were allegedly involved in an Aug. 28 hazing incident on campus.
The indictments, handed down by a Forrest County Grand Jury, stem from probable cause and charge each student with the misdemeanor of crimes of conspiracy to commit hazing.
The charges also include two counts of first-degree hazing and one count of second-degree hazing.
Each student could get a maximum of 2 years in prison and be charged $5,000 in fines.
The students were processed and released pending a hearing in Forrest County Circuit Court. Another student was also indicted in the case but will be served next week.
Those served indictments include:
Amanda Newman, 21, Hattiesburg
