4 serving probation for role in Pa. student’s fall

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Four Penn State students will serve probation for supplying alcohol to a party where a cheerleader was seriously hurt in a fall from a fifth-floor window.

Alexandria Hipple, Madeline Miller, Alyssa Duffy and Brooke Piccione each pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of furnishing alcohol to minors.

The Centre Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/18lehKV) each will serve one year probation, perform community service and pay fines. Other charges were dismissed as part of a plea deal.

Four others charged in the case were scheduled to appear Thursday in Centre County Court for conferences.

The eight were charged after an October party in which student Paige Raque fell 39 feet from an apartment window. Police say the fall was accidental.
