Chun “Michael” Deng


The first of 37 Baruch College students indicted in a hazing death three years ago, has been sentenced in a plea deal with Pennsylvania prosecutors.

Ka-Wing Yuen, 25, was placed on five years’ probation Monday, ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and fined $1,000.

He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to hinder apprehension and conspiracy in the hazing death of Chun “Michael” Deng.

“I’m extremely sorry for what happened,” a soft-spoken Yuen told the court at his sentencing Monday, according to the Pocono Record newspaper. “It was most unfortunate.”

The 18-year-old Pi Delta Psi fraternity pledge Deng died during a brutal series of hazing rituals at a rented rented house in the Poconos.

Five frat brothers are awaiting trial on murder charges.

At Yuen’s sentencing, Monroe County President Judge Margherita Patti Worthington said Deng’s death was senseless.

“You have parents saying, ‘There but for the grace of God goes my child,’ ” said Worthington. “I don’t know why fraternities don’t ban these types of practices.”
