Attorney: Charges dismissed against ex-band member Henry Nesbitt in FAMU hazing case

Prosecutors have decided not to pursue charges against one of the remaining defendants in the hazing death of a FAMU drum major.

Zachary White, the attorney for ex-band member Henry Nesbitt, told The Associated Press on Saturday that the prosecutor is dismissing manslaughter and felony hazing charges against Nesbitt in Robert Champion's November 2011 death following a hazing ritual outside an Orlando hotel.

Nesbitt called 911 after Champion collapsed.

A message left with the state attorney's office was not immediately returned. A "Nolle Prosequi" was filed Friday. The Latin phrase means the charges are not being pursued.

Fifteen former band members were charged with manslaughter and hazing in Champion's death. Seven have been sentenced to probation and community service. Two have both pleaded no contest to manslaughter and await sentencing.
