Foltz had attended an off-campus Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity event in spring of 2021, at which new members received mentors from among the older fraternity members. Court documents show those older members gave new members liquor and told them to drink the whole bottle. 

Foltz allegedly drank all, or nearly all, of his bottle before he was dropped off at his apartment and later found unresponsive by his roommate and other friends. 

They called 911 and tried to save his life, but Foltz ultimately died March 7, 2021.

Below is a breakdown of the cases for the five men who were sentenced Thursday.
