Fraternity chapter is
dissolved, nude coed was chained to stairs
CHARLESTON, III. (AP) - The alleged handcuffing of a nude woman student to a staircase has caused officials to dissolve Eastern Illinois University’s Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity chapter.
The action by the fraternity’s national office was the most severe of several sanctions against the fraternity announced by the university.
The university has alleged the 21-year-old woman was handcuffed to the staircase for several hurs during an Oct. I "Pimp and Whore" theme party at the fraternity house sponsored by the fraternity and the Sigma Kappa sorority.
‘‘The university obviously does not condone such activity and our actions today are intended to communicate that message quite clearly to all concerned," EIU President Stan Rives said in a statement Tuesday.
Clark Schnepper of Rochester, a 21-year-old Phi Sigma Kappa member who recently withdrew from the university, has been charged with misdemeanor battery in the incident.
He has pleaded innocent and faces a Nov. 24 jury trial in Coles County Circuit Court.
The university said another stu
dent has been indefinitely suspended and four others have been placed on final disciplinary proba tion.
Final disciplinary probation means any further violation of the EIU student conduct code will result in immediate suspension, the university said.
Another student received a reprimand, and cases against three others were dismissed. The university would not identify the students who received the penalties.
Kevin Hextell. president of EIU’s Pjii Sigma Kappa chapter, said he was unaware his fraternity had lost its charter and declined comment.
No one at the national office of Phi Sigma Kappa in Indianapolis, Ind., could be reached immediately for comment. Only a recording answered the telephone at the national office early this morning.
A local chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa could be re-established ‘‘after a reasonable period of time” with approval by the fraternity’s national office and the university, the university statement said.
In the case of the sorority, Eastern said it has continued its preliminary sanctions, including probation for the rest of the semester and restrictions on sorority activities.
