Gov. John Bel Edwards signed an anti-hazing bill into law today at the Louisiana State Capitol.
The ‘Max Gruver Act’ makes it a felony for anyone involved in the act of hazing that results in death on college campuses in Louisiana.
The bill is named for the 18-year old LSU freshman who died in a fraternity hazing incident last year.
If you are arrested under this law, you could face up to five years in prison and a ten thousand dollar fine.
The signing occurred this afternoon in the Governor’s Press Room on the 4th floor.
