Penn State Students Sentenced for Vandalizing Jewish Frat

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Two Penn State students who pleaded guilty to spray-painting anti-Semitic graffiti on a mostly Jewish fraternity house were sentenced to community service and probation.

Eric Hyland, 20, was sentenced last week in Centre County Court to 200 hours of community service and two years’ probation, and was ordered to pay $6,000 restitution.

Last month, Hayden Grom was sentenced to 300 hours of community service and two years’ probation.

Last November, Hyland and Grom spray-painted swastikas and anti-Semitic words and images on the Beta Sigma Beta fraternity building, on cars parked outside the house and on a dumpster. Their actions were captured on security cameras.

The students were charged with ethnic intimidation, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

They were kicked out of their own fraternity, Acacia, which reportedly condemned their actions.
