Back on October 31, 2014, an Orange County, Fla. jury found former band member Dante Martin guilty of manslaughter in the hazing death of Champion. It also found him guilty of two misdemeanor hazing convictions against former Marching 100 band members Lissette Sanchez and Keon Hollis. The three victims were beaten on a parked bus at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando on November 19, 2011 after the Florida Classic football game.
Prosecutors requested a sentence of nine years for Martin. But Roche decided on a sentence of six years and five months.
