Are they really "appealing" -- or just kind of cute

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Three fraternity brothers accused in a case that tested Florida's law against hazing avoided prison by pleading no contest Monday to a lesser charge in the beating of a prospective member.

Each received probation, including 30 days in a sheriff's work camp, after entering the pleas to misdemeanor hazing. Prosecutors offered the plea deal only after two mistrials on felony hazing charges.

Five Florida A&M University fraternity brothers were tried together. The second jury convicted two, and each was sentenced to two years in prison. They are appealing.

HuffPo has the rest.

Gee, how nice. They beat the crap out of a fellow human being for no good reason and this can now become just a 'speed bump' in their lives. Sure would hate to see it have a detrimental impact on their future.

Their jobs at Gitmo are waiting.
