The third co-defendant in a case involving hazing at WVU entered a plea in court on Tuesday.

According to Defense Attorney Bader Giggenbach, Christopher Lazzell pleaded no contest to one count of hazing. A judge gave Lazzell a nine month suspended prison sentence, but ordered he serve two days in jail. Lazzell will be on probation for the next two years and he'll also pay a $1,000.

Monongalia County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Perri DeChristopher has referred to the reported hazing incident as a planned attack on the victim, Sam Sablosky. Officials are saying hazing took place at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house on North Spruce Street in November 2013.

Lazzell was originally scheduled to appear in court on Monday, but he missed his hearing following a communication issue.

On Monday, co-defendant Andrew Nemes was given a 15 month suspended prison sentence, 10 days of jail time, two years of probation and a $1,000 fine. On May 29, co-defendant Michael Sousa was handed down the same sentence that Lazzell received.
