MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A California man will spend 10 days in jail after pleading no contest to hazing and battery at a West Virginia University fraternity.

Media outlets report that Andrew Nemes of Huntington Beach, California, entered his plea Monday. Monongalia County Magistrate Jim Nabors sentenced Nemes to a total 15 months in jail, and then suspended all but 10 days.

Nemes also must pay a $1,000 fine.

Police say a 19-year-old man was physically assaulted and injured on Nov. 15, 2013, while participating in an initiation at Phi Kappa Psi's WVU chapter.

Co-defendant Michael Sousa of Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey, pleaded no contest to hazing in May. He received a 48-hour sentence and was fined $1,000.

Another co-defendant, 24-year-old Christopher Lazzell of Morgantown, failed to appear at his hearing on Monday.
