            SB 423 is also known as the Max Gruver Act – named for a Roswell native who died in a hazing incident at Louisiana State University in 2017.

            Georgia Senate supports tougher penalties for college hazing

            The Georgia Senate Thursday approved a measure that would increase prison time for anyone convicted of being involved in the hazing death or serious injury of a college student.

            Under Senate Bill 423, anyone involved in such hazing that results in the death or serious harm of a student could get as much as 10 years in prison. Anyone who fails to help the student could get up to five years in prison.

            Under current state law, hazing – the submission of a student to an activity that is likely to endanger them – is a misdemeanor that carries a penalty of up to a year in prison. SB 423 makes some hazing crimes a felony.

            SB 423 is also known as the Max Gruver Act – named for a Roswell native who died in a hazing incident at Louisiana State University in 2017.

            The measure passed by a vote of 52 to 0.
