COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Three Texas A&M University cadets charged in the death of a recruit during a hazing exercise have been expelled from the university, their attorney said.
Anthony D'Alessandro and Jason Miles, both of Houston, and Louis Fancher of San Antonio were notified of the expulsion on Friday.
They are expected to receive written discliplinary notices this week and will have three days to appeal.
Their attorney, W.W. Vance, said the dismissal means the students will be kept out of school indefinitely. Vance said he would meet with the students and their families to determine the next legal step.
'They will be allowed to reapply for admission back to school by fall 1985, but it's no guarantee they'll be let back in,' Vance said.
The three were indicted by a Brazos County grand jury Sept. 28 on charges of hazing and criminal negligent homicide in the Aug. 30 death of cadet recruit Bruce Dean Goodrich of Webster, N.Y.
Goodrich collapsed and died of heat stroke during the late-night 'motivational exercises.'
A fourth cadet, Gabriel Caudra of Houston, also was disciplined for allegedly failing to report the hazing, but details were not available. Caudra, who was a leader in Goodrich's Corps of Cadets, withdrew from the university last week.
