HENS, Ga.  — An attorney representing at least one of 11 University of Georgia students accused of hazing denied allegations that fraternity pledges were beaten.

Athens attorney Mo Wiltshire tells The Athens Banner-Herald that the arrests of the fraternity members were unwarranted, and he plans a vigorous defense. Wiltshire says he’s already representing one of the fraternity members and may represent all 11.

All 11 defendants have turned themselves in to face misdemeanor hazing charges after police say that students were beaten with fists during a Jan. 27 initiation ritual.

School officials say the Zeta Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi has been suspended while the case is investigated.
