Fraternity sentenced for cutting down trees in national forest

A fraternity at California State University, Chico, has been ordered to perform 9,800 hours of community service for cutting down trees in Lassen National Forest during an initiation ceremony.

The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity pleaded guilty to illegally cutting or otherwise damaging timber, trees or forest products, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release. In addition to the community service, U.S. Magistrate Judge Craig M. Kellison on Tuesday ordered the fraternity to pay a $4,000 fine and to pay restitution in the amount of $4,387.97 to the Lassen National Forest. The fraternity also received a three-year term of probation.
