Orlando, Fla. • The first of a dozen defendants to be sentenced in last year's hazing death of a Florida A&M drum major avoided jail time when he received his punishment Monday, but he will spend more than two years under close supervision. Brian Jones was given six months of community control, which strictly limits his freedom with measures including an ankle monitor and frequent check-ins with probation officials. After that, the 23-year-old from Parrish, Fla., will serve two years of probation. He's also required to perform 200 hours of community service. Judge Marc Lubet said Jones's role in the hazing death of Robert Champion was relatively minimal.
