Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is expected to sign legislation that includes harsher penalties for hazing.
HB78, known as the Max Gruver Act, won final passage last night. It's named after the LSU freshman from Roswell, Georgia, who died after a fraternity hazing incident last September that pushed his blood-alcohol level six times higher than the legal driving limit.
Violators of the proposed law face up to five years in prison if they take part in a hazing where the victim dies with a BAC of at least .30, while a non-death would be punishable by up to six months in prison.
