A new law taking effect September 24 is making hazing a crime in Arizona. It’s being called “Jack’s Law” and violators could now face criminal charges.
It’s named after Jack Culolias, an Arizona State University student who died following a fraternity pledge event in 2012.
Alex, Jack’s twin brother, was just 19-years old when he decided to pledge for a fraternity at ASU.
At the time, his mom said she wasn’t concerned.
But in November 2012, Jack disappeared after a fraternity pledge event that involved excessive amounts of alcohol.
Days later, Jack’s body was found in Tempe Town Lake.
“I brought Jack to ASU and I took him to his dorm,” said Grace. “The hardest thing I had to do was go back to that dorm and take his belongings without him.”
