Philadelphia, PA (May 28, 2015) – The following authorized statement of James Vivenzio is being issued by his attorney, Aaron J. Freiwald, Freiwald Law, P.C., on behalf of Mr. Vivenzio in response to media inquiries:
I am pleased that Penn State is finally taking seriously the documented allegations of hazing and other misconduct at KDR that I first brought to the attention of University officials and then to the attention of the local
police. Suspending KDR now is only a small step toward what needs to be done to stop the blatantly abusive practices at KDR that I experienced first hand, and at other fraternities. I am committed as one individual, who has been supported by many others, to bringing about positive and permanent change to eliminate hazing and sexual harassment. Penn State can and must do much more to stop hazing and sexual harassment and should commit to lead by example.
Mr. Vivenzio has no further comment on this matter at this time.
