Rutgers University sorority sisters accused of paddling pledges to face trial
Shawna Ebanks, 21, of East Orange, Kesha Cheron, 20, of Newark, Llana Warner, 20, of the Bronx, Vanessa Adegbite, 21, of Jersey City and Joana Bernard and Marie Charles, both 21, and of West Orange were charged several months ago with fourth degree felony charges. Since that time, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office has downgraded the charges to simple hazing and Rutgers has dropped all disciplinary charges. Nevertheless, the case will go to trial in New Brunswick Municipal Court.
They are all members of the Sigma Gamma Rho sorority and the chapter itself remains suspended.
