The FAMU fraternity hazing trial heard from the fraternity's former president. He claimed Wednesday that he was not aware of any hazing that may have taken place.
The alleged victim, Marcus Jones, is also expected to take the stand in the retrial. In opening statements Tuesday the prosecutor wasted no time.
Frank Allman stressed what he called the severity of the injuries former Kappa Alpha Psi pledge Marcus Jones sustained during an initiation ritual last spring.
Allman claims the hazing was not limited to hitting Jones with canes, but also included punches in the face and head, but the defense argues Jones was never able to positively identify who caused his initial injuries.
