Lawyers want Penn State live-in frat adviser to testify in pledge death

Penn State fraternity member charged with student's death deleted video, detective says

After almost 40 hours in court, defense attorneys now want to question Timothy Bream.

Sinclair's ruling compels Bream's appearance - and possible testimony - in the ongoing preliminary hearing of 18 Penn State students charged with contributing to the February 2 hazing-related death of Timothy Piazza.

Magisterial District Judge Allen Sinclair has set an August 30 date for a contempt of court hearing for Penn State's head football trainer, Tim Bream.

Bream served as house manager for the Beta Theta Pi fraternity in 2016 and 2017. Investigators for the defense said they had tried to serve a subpoena to Bream over a period of months but were unsuccessful and eventually served the order to appear in court through counsel for Penn State.

Now, all 16 Beta Theta Pi fraternity brothers accused of doing nothing when a fraternity brother fell down a flight of stairs after a night of drinking will be back in court later this month.

Because Bream was in charge, defense teams hope his actions that night could help poke holes in the prosecution's case and reduce some of the more serious charges against their clients.

Members of a Pennsylvania State University fraternity charged in the death of a pledge were set to return to court Thursday to resume a hearing to determine if the case will move on for trial.

Piazza later died from his injuries sustained during the party, and an investigation revealed it was almost 12 hours before anyone called 9-1-1. "As we have stated, the university is investigating all aspects of what occurred at the Beta Theta Pi house", according to the statement.
