ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) ' Legal experts say band members' statements to investigators that a Florida A & M University drum major willingly got on a bus where he endured a beating with drumsticks, mallets and fists helps explain why the nearly dozen defendants charged in his death face felony hazing counts and not more severe charges.
Interviews with defendants in Robert Champion's killing and other band members released Wednesday paint the most detailed picture yet of what happened the night he died last November. They also offer some insight into why Robert Champion, whose parents and friends say he was a vocal opponent of hazing, finally relented and got aboard "Bus C," the band's notorious venue for hazing after its performances during FAMU football games.
