Hazing dismissal weighed for Amherst man in student death at W. Virginia U - Buffalo News

Monday, November 28, 2016

Burch shortly before midnight, called 911 and began performing CPR.Police found Burch on the floor. He died less than 36 hours later in J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va.Hankins agreed to a similar pretrial diversion.The hazing and conspiracy to commit hazing charges against both defendants will be dismissed June 30, 2018, pending successful completion of the diversion program.The defendants and the Monongalia County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office agreed to the deal back in June, and Monongalia Circuit Court Judge Susan B. Tucker did not oppose it.The Burch family declined to be interviewed about the disposition of the criminal charges against Schwartz and Hankins.But in a statement on behalf of the family, attorney Terrence M. Connors said the parents, TJ and Kim Burch, never wanted to see the young men go to jail.Friends and family attend a vigil for Nolan Burch in Amherst after the 18-year-old freshman died in a hazing initiation at West Virginia University. (News file photo)“The focus has always been to raise public awareness regarding the unchecked culture of fraternity hazing that has claimed the lives of Nolan and dozens of other students around the country.That is the goal of the civil litigation,” Connors said.Schwartz ended up leaving West Virginia University and enrolling at another college to pursue a degree, McCoid said.In Amherst, Schwartz and Burch lived only a few blocks away from each other, off of Maple Road near Hopkins Road.They did not know each other well prior to Burch’s pledging the fraternity, but McCoid described Schwartz and Burch as “friendly” while they were at West Virginia together.Schwartz gave Burch a ride home from Morgantown during a fall break in 2014.Burch’s parents filed a wrongful-death suit in 2015, accusing the fraternity of pressuring their son “to drink excessive amounts of alcohol in order to be accepted for admission into Kappa Sigma.”In addition to the fraternity, the suit also named as defendants the university, Hankins and Schwartz and the owners of the apartment building where the drinking occurred.The Burches, through Connors, argued in court papers that the university was negligent because it allowed Kappa Sigma to operate as a student organization despite knowing that it promoted hazing, excessive drinking and underage drinking. The lawsuit also contends that the university did not investigate allegations of fraternity misconduct. The case is still in its discovery phase.
