ORLANDO, Fla. – The last three defendants in the hazing death of a Florida A & M University drum major have been found guilty of manslaughter and felony hazing.
A jury in Orlando on Friday deliberated for 2 ½ hours before convicting Benjamin McNamee, Darryl Cearnel and Aaron Golson.
They were the final three defendants charged in 26-year-old Robert Champion's death.
Champion's death exposed a culture of hazing within the school's famed marching band.
Defense attorneys say they will likely appeal.
Sentencing is set for June, when they each could face a maximum of 20 years in prison.
